NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 6 ounces ham steak, cut in 1/4-inch dice (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 1/2 cups 1/8-inch-thick slices red onion
  • 6 whole large eggs
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat sharp Cheddar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray.

  • Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a large nonstick skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the ham and cook until shrunken and somewhat dried, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn and cook another 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.

  • Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and the onions to the pan and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent and very soft, 11 to 12 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, lightly beat the whole eggs and egg whites in a large bowl. Add all but 2 tablespoons of the cheese, the salt and thyme, and whisk until well blended. Stir in the ham and onions.

  • Scoop about 1/4 cup of the mixture at a time into the prepared muffin pan, and divide the remaining 2 tablespoons of cheese over the tops. Bake in the center of the oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 22 to 25 minutes. Cool slightly before removing from the pan. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Cook's Note: You may substitute 6 strips of lean, center-cut bacon for the ham and still stay under 100 calories.
