This Paleo ham egg bake is the perfect “clean out the fridge” meal. It works for both hosting a brunch or simple Whole30 meal prep with leftover ham to have grab-and-go breakfasts for the week. The versatility of it for those reasons make it a hit no matter what you’re doing or who you’re feeding. Everyone loves the hash brown crust too! I’ve made this dozens of times with a variety of different veggies, so get creative and change things up!
You could try diced tomatoes, mushrooms, zucchini, whatever ya got handy! If you’re swapping them out, I’d be sure to still use the same measurements so the egg, Whole30 ham and hash brown ratio still stays the same as well.
It can be hard to find ham without added sugar or preservatives. I opt for Whole3o Approved Pederson’s Farm ham. In fact, this egg bake is a result of the leftover holiday ham I made! Egg bakes are a big holiday staple for the morning after Christmas in my family, so it was perfect! Plus it’s pre-cooked and sliced so I have to do about 4 minutes of actual “cooking”.
YOU CAN GET THIS PALEO AND WHOLE30 HAM IN THE ULTIMATE WHOLE30 BOX ON THE SIMPLE GROCER.
I’m not a huge fan of reheated eggs personally, but I love this right out of the oven and then my boyfriend takes every last bit of the Whole30 ham egg bake leftovers for his breakfast throughout the week. What I do is just cut it up and place each one in a baggie. Egg bakes also freeze really well! When you take it out of the freezer it will thaw and reheat in the microwave in just a few minutes so they’re really convenient that way if you’re a freezer meal fan!
You can serve this Whole30 ham egg bake by topping it with salsa, hot sauce, or with a side of crispy bacon and extra veggies! It’s so filling and satisfying, just the way I like my breakfasts.

This is easy to assemble and delicious! Can’t really ask for much more! We will definitely be adding this into our regular meal prep rotation!
Thank you so much, Dustin! This is so great to hear, and I appreciate you taking the time to let me know!
This was really delicious. Everyone in the family loved it.
I’m so happy to hear! Thank you so much!
Hi! This is exactly what I’m in the mood for a breakfast for dinner tomorrow. About the hash browns….If I don’t use store bought would I just use room temperature grated potatoes pressed into the pan? Thanks for your help!
Yes! I think that would be just fine!

My friends raves about this when I took it to our brunch. Thanks for the recipe!

Bailey, this looks so scrumptious and I’d love to make it – the only problem is that I am deathly allergic to eggs. I’m wondering if you have any suggestions for what I might use to replace the 8 eggs called for in the recipe?
Thank you so much for this glowing 5 star review of this egg recipe you’re allergic to! Might I suggest replacing the eggs with mashed bananas? To keep your banana nice and hard prior to mashing of the banana, I’d recommending picking up a few of these: https://www.amazon.com/Banana-Bunker-Color-Yellow/dp/B000VY8836
You are a genius! I never knew I needed a Banana Bunker until now. They’ll make the perfect gift for all of my food blogger friends, too.

Hi Bailey! This looks delish! Question… what brand of hashbrowns and ham do you use? I can never find ham that is whole30 compliant and hashbrowns are questionable. I’m making the transition from 3 rounds of Whole30 to Paleo and didn’t know if there was more Paleo friendly versions of those ingredients?
p.s. I love following you on Instagram and now the blog. You are a big reason I started this lifestyle and I can’t thank you enough!
Hi, Kate!! Thank you so much – I’m so glad you’re loving the blog so far! 🙂
I either grate my own hash browns or purchase them frozen. There’s ONE brand at Target (that I now for the life of me can’t remember the name of, I’m so sorry!) that are all natural and just potatoes. The Whole Foods brand one has a stabilizer in them and in a pinch I’ll use those.
I don’t get ham very often, because like you mentioned it’s hard to find! But when I do, I order it from Pederson’s (on Simplegrocer.com), from a restaurant that sources and sells meat and produce from it’s own farm. I’ve also had luck finding it a few times in butcher shops or the Whole Food’s meat counter (although it’s much more expensive from that store).
