  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Ask your little helper to grease 8 holes of a muffin tin with butter.
  2. Push one slice of bread into each greased hole, moulding it to fit with your fingers (kids will love helping with this part!) – all four corners of the bread should be sticking up. Bake for 5 mins, or until lightly toasted. Remove and leave to cool a little.
  3. Get the kids to put one slice of ham inside each cup, smoothing it out to make a lining for the toast. Crack an egg into each one and season well – best if you do this bit. Return to the oven for 10 mins, or until the whites are cooked but the yolk is still soft*. Remove from the oven and ask the kids to scatter over the chives. Serve immediately.
