How to Make Cheesy Ham & Egg Surprise Brunch Cups GFCF


  1. Grease 12 medium muffin cups or line with paper (or use 6 large muffin cups)
  2. Mix dry ingredients - cornmeal, glad flour**, baking powder, salt, brown sugar.
  3. Add 1 egg, milk, and oil. Mix well.
  4. Fill cups 1/3 full with batter.
  5. Top with equal amounts of ham, cranberries, onion and torn bits of cheese slices.
  6. Top with spoonfuls of beaten egg (if using the 6 large muffin cup pan, consider cracking one whole egg on each top, prick the yoke with a toothpick, or fork)
  7. Bake in 375 oven for 15 minutes or until a knife inserted near center comes out clean.
  8. A Note about Gluten and Casein Free Ingredients: Since my family began this diet, we have discovered that you always have to read the labels on the foods you buy. This week when shopping I may buy something that is clearly gfcf and next week when I look for the same item I will notice they have changed the ingredient list adding dry milk, or maltodextrin, or some other questionable ingredient. I find that it's best to stick to unprocessed foods whenever possible- make it from scratch. My son is on the autism spectrum, its not the end of the world if he gets a little gluten or casein, while it may ruin his day, it isn't life threatening. I always watch him for symptoms and note the offending food. Please keep this in mind while selecting your ingredients for my GFCF recipes. Happy Careful Shopping! :)
