A new way to serve eggs

So I've been trying to figure out some fun ways to serve food - mainly so my two year old might finally decide to eat something, but also because it is fun.  I saw a picture of these little egg baskets so decided to make them.

What you need:
Rosti package (unless you want to make your own hash browns)
ham (2 pieces per egg)
cheese of your choice (I used gruyere)
Cinnamon rolls (Ikea, frozen section)
powdered sugar
salt and pepper to taste
any veggies you may wish to add (mushrooms, onions...)

For the rosti, put some butter in a pan and heat. Add the potatoes and then cook until browned (5-10 minutes).  Put a plate over the pan to and flip the pan over to remove the rosti.  Add some more butter, turn down the heat a bit and and cover.  Cook for about 10 more minutes.

For the egg cups, heat the oven to 200 C.  Place the ham in the bottom of a muffin pan, and overlap it to make sure the egg doesn't get out the bottom.  Add some cheese and whatever else you would like (mushrooms, onions, etc) Crack the egg into the 'basket' and then put in the oven for 15 minutes.

For icing for the cinnamon rolls, put 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 1-2 tbls milk (I know I have low fat milk in the picture, but that's all I had, even though it seems a bit funny).  Whisk up and then drizzle over the cinnamon rolls.
