Whip your 5 eggs, and divide the mixture up between the 10 biscuits, so you get about 1/2 an egg in each biscuit cup.  Then sprinkle with cheese, and if you like, diced ham or bacon.  Try to get very close to the same amount in each cup, so they will cook in the same amount of time.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until your egg is cooked all the way.
