Brunch Cups are the brunch food designed to be immediately loved and easy to whip together! Each muffin-like cup is full of delicious flavors like fluffy eggs, savory ham, flaky puff pastry, melted Swiss cheese, and more. Top them with chives, salt, and pepper for a perfectly seasoned and tasty breakfast or brunch any day of the week. These Brunch Cups are scrumptious, so much so you may be tempted not to share!
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat.
Add in the flour and whisk to combine. Pour in the milk, little by little, whisking after each addition.
Bring the mixture to a simmer, whisking until the mixture thickens.
Take the mixture off the heat and stir in the cheese.
Season the mixture with salt, and set it aside.
Using a rolling pin, roll out the puff pastry sheets until they are thin.
Cut each pastry sheet into 9 equal squares, making 18 total.
Line each well of a muffin tin with one puff pastry square, pressing it firmly to the bottom and sides. The edges should come just over the top of the muffin tin.
Fill each cup with a spoonful of the cheese sauce.
Crack one egg into each cup and sprinkle the diced ham on the top of each egg.
Brush the exposed portions of the puff pastry with the egg wash.
Bake until the eggs are set, about 10-15 minutes.
Sprinkle the cups with the chives, salt, and pepper.
