Whenever I read the current Best B&B Bites recipe, I think about how it could fit into my menu. Quite often with the breakfast dishes, I figure that they would work well on a weekend morning. However, this recipe for Ham & Cheese Cups seems like a dish that could be made on a weekday. Although it does need 30 minutes of baking time, it seems that if I made the cups and put them in the oven first thing, it would fit into our morning schedule. Requiring minimal prep work and cleaning, it seems like a nice midweek breakfast treat.
Provided by The Heartstone Inn & Cottages in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, it looks like a great dish to start the day.
Ham & Cheese Cups
6-12 slices square sandwich ham
1/2 cup green onion, finely chopped
1-1/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
8 oz. plain yogurt
2 Tb. fresh parsley, chopped
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 6 custard cups or muffin tins and place on cookie sheet. Line each greased cup/tin with 1 or 2 slices of ham and divide onions and 1 cup cheese between cups. In medium bowl, beat eggs and yogurt until well blended and pour over cheese in each cup. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and parsley. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until set.
Remove from cups/tins and serve.
