Shirred Eggs with Ham

An excellent way in which to utilize scraps of ham is to combine them with eggs to make a dish that may be served in place of meat. This dish, besides being high in food value, is very tasty because of the flavor of the ham and the fact that it is quite highly seasoned.

Sufficient to serve six.


  • 1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup chopped ham
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter


Grease six individual baking dishes. Mix the mustard and pepper with the ham, and then divide this mixture as evenly as possible into the baking dishes. Break an egg on top of the ham in each dish, season with salt, and put a small piece of butter on each. Place the dishes in a shallow pan of hot water and bake in a moderate oven until the eggs are well set or hardened. Remove from the oven and serve at once.
