Guys, how adorable are these ham & egg cups? Seriously the cutest!

When I was asked a few weeks ago about receiving a copy of The Perfect Portion Cookbook, I was instantly intrigued. The cookbook is described as being filled with favorite comfort food recipes, but uses a simple 100 calorie per serving method that makes it easy to enjoy the recipes and know where you stand. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know I love good food and am not afraid to indulge in a sweet treat, but I also like living a healthy lifestyle and of course, want to look my best. It truly is all about balance for me. In reading through The Perfect Portion Cookbook, I loved the concept because it isn’t trying to restrict you from eating any of your favorite foods (think mac & cheese and brownies), but instead tells you exactly what serving size would equal 100 calories. There’s no guesswork and you know exactly what you are putting into your body.

Over the weekend, I had some time to make brunch so reached for the cookbook and gave one of the recipes- Baked Ham and Egg Cups- a try. The baked ham and egg cups were delicious! Not only that, but this recipe was very easy to put together- just line a muffin tin with ham, add in green onions, crack an egg in the tin, bake, sprinkle on some cheese and enjoy! The individual servings not only make it easy to know your portions, but I also love the idea of making the baked ham and egg cups when hosting brunch. How perfect would these be for Easter brunch? It would make serving your guests a total breeze and they’d look adorable on a serving tray!

If you are looking for a new cookbook to try, I’d absolutely recommend The Perfect Portion Cookbook! I can’t wait to try out some more recipes from it, especially from the dessert chapter 🙂 Once you make the Baked Ham and Egg Cups for yourself (recipe below), you’ll know how delicious the cookbook’s recipes are and how simple the perfect portion can be!
