Bake these cups in the oven or heat in the microwave and ready in just a few minutes.


  • 1 slice bacon or ham

  • 1 small green onion, chopped

  • 2 tbsp shredded light Cheddar cheese, divided

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) low fat plain yoghurt or sour cream

  • Pinch of pepper

  • 2 tsp fresh parsley – chopped (optional)


  • To make in microwave: Spray 300 mL microwave-safe ramekin or custard cup with cooking spray. Place bacon or ham slice in ramekin. Sprinkle green onion and 1 tbsp cheese over top. Whisk eggs, yogurt and pepper in a small bowl until blended; pour into ramekin. Sprinkle remaining cheese and parsley, if desired, over top. Cover loosely with plastic wrap, turning it back slightly to vent.
  • Microwave on Medium-High (70% power) until cooked as desired, 2-1/2 to 3 minutes. Remove from microwave; let stand, covered, for 1 minute.
  • Remove plastic wrap carefully and serve.
  • To make in oven: Follow directions above, sprinkling only cheese over egg mixture before baking. Bake uncovered, in a preheated 200˚C oven until puffed, golden and cooked, approx 25 to 30 minutes. Sprinkle parsley on top to serve.


  • Use a microwaveable-safe mug or cup instead of a ramekin.
