My mother used to make these all the time for my family, so I'm just carrying on the tradition. They're quick to put together, and while they're in the oven I go get ready for the day. My children loved them, even when they were toddlers. —Lisa Walder, Urbana, Illinois

"SUPER easy and delish! I used ham instead of roast beef and sprinkled the tops with some kosher salt and cracked pepper. These would be great on a brunch buffet. I baked mine on convection for about 20 minutes until they were hard set. Will try baking conventional next time for about 15 minutes for a softer yolk. Everyone loved them!! Thanks for such an easy and versatile recipe!"

"Haven't tried this version, but make mine w/sweet sliced ham, salso, eggs and cheese-sometimes scramble the egg sometimes use it whole. You can vary the fillings and they are all good!"

"Wow easy to make! It's like poached eggs in the oven. Very tasty, serve with toast, fruit and voila'... breakfast in a dash. If you like soft poached leave in oven for about 15-20 minutes, 25 minutes for hard poached. I could see skipping the cheese and making a hollandaise sauce to put over before serving."

"Great idea. I used thin deli ham since we are traditional ham bacon sausage types in my family."

"I did mine in custard cups, as one reviewer suggested. Turned out great! Can't wait to try it with scrambled eggs, maybe sausage and hash browns!"
