  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Lightly grease a 1-cup capacity, non-stick muffin pan with spray oil.
  3. Spray one side of a filo pastry sheet lightly with oil. Fold in half, spray, and fold in half again.
  4. Cut folded pastry sheet in half, and use each half to line a muffin hole, pressing down to fit.
  5. Repeat with remaining pastry (spray, fold, cut, place in muffin hole).
  6. Divide the ham between muffin holes.
  7. In a large bowl, whisk together the milk and half the eggs and season with black pepper.
  8. Pour mixture in muffin holes, dividing evenly between each hole.  Make sure you leave room (1cm or more) in the top of each hole for the remaining eggs.
  9. Crack one egg into each muffin hole, and top with a sprinkling of grated cheese.
  10. Bake for 20–30 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing from their trays. Serve warm or cold.



  • These filo cups are great for breakfast, or on their own as a savoury snack.
  • Try replacing ham with sliced tomato, spinach, or smoked salmon for a fancy variation.
