Ham and Egg Cups

I have been married for 46 years.  During that time I have done most of the cooking.  Everyone says you can't teach an old dog new tricks.  I thought that was true until the last couple years.  My husband (AKA Old Dog) has turned into the Galloping Gourmet).  He watches cooking shows, he prints recipes and sometimes reposts them on Facebook and then he makes out the grocery list.  I am very tired of cooking so I welcome this with open arms.  On top of that, last weekend I cut my pointer finger very bad and have it all bandaged up.  I didn't realize how much I relied on that finger.  Even typing this is a challenge.

 
I posted his Meatloaf recipe as while back.  http://www.thecabincountess.com/2013/11/tangy-meatloaf-comfort-food.html

This weekend he made an egg dish.  I don't know where he got the recipe, but it was very good.  He wrote it in long hand on a piece of copy paper.  I almost said typing paper, but I would have been dating myself.  Oh yes, I already mentioned how long I have been married.  Talk about dating ones self.

Ham and Egg Cups

24 slices of honey ham
10 large eggs
1/4 cup diced green pepper
1/4 cup chopped onion
Pat of butter
1/4 cup milk
1 t. salt
1 t. pepper
1 Tablespoon shredded cheese per cup

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Prepare muffin tins with cooking spray.
Place green pepper and onion in a bowl with the pat of butter.
Cook in microwave for 1 minute.  Remove from microwave and cover with plastic wrap.
Line each muffin tin with two pieces of ham, overlapping.


 Whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper


Ladle some egg mixture into each cup.
Top each egg cup with green pepper and onion mix.
Top each with 1 Tablespoon of cheese.

 
Bake for about 25 minutes or until the eggs are set.


These are very good.  The edges of the ham gets crunchy which is the way he likes them.
