Jill Dupleix's little egg & ham pies

Jill Dupleix's little egg & ham pies

Ham and eggs always go wonderfully together and when snuggled up as a pie they're just perfection!

  • Preparation: 5 mins
  • Cooking: 20 mins
  • Serves: 12

What you need:

  • 1 tsp olive oil or butter
  • 12 large British Lion eggs
  • 12 thin slices of ham, bacon or pancetta
  • Sea salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp roughly chopped parsley
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan

What you do:

  1. Heat the oven to 180C/Gas 4. Lightly oil or butter each mould of a large-hole muffin tray. Line each mould with a slice of ham, letting it flop out at the top, then break an egg into each hollow. Scatter with salt, pepper, parsley and grated parmesan.
  2. Bake for 20 minutes until the egg is set and starting to shrink away from the sides, and the ham is crisp. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for 5 minutes. Run a knife around each mould to loosen each pie, then remove to a wire tray. Eat warm or cold.
