Toast Cups

12 slices sandwich bread
1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, melted


1/4 cup water
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup cubed cooked ham
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese


Heat oven to 400°F.

Flatten each bread slice with rolling pin. Make 1-inch diagonally cut into each corner of each bread slice with sharp knife. Lightly brush both sides of each flattened bread slice with melted butter. Gently press bread slices into cups of ungreased 12-cup muffin pan, overlapping crust to form cups. Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.

Whisk eggs, water and pepper together in bowl until well mixed.

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in 10-inch skillet; add green pepper. Cook over medium heat until crisply tender; add beaten eggs and ham. Continue cooking, gently lifting portions with spatula so uncooked portion flows underneath, 5-6 minutes or until eggs are set. Add 1/4 cup shredded cheese. Continue cooking, gently stirring, 1 minute or until cheese is melted.

Heat broiler.

Place muffin pan with toast cups onto ungreased baking sheet. Fill each toast cup with about 1/3 cup egg mixture. Sprinkle remaining cheese evenly over top of egg cups. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat 1-2 minutes or until cheese just begins to melt.

Recipe Tip

To make ahead, prepare cups and scrambled eggs as directed. Wrap each in plastic food wrap. Place into freezer bag; freeze. When ready to eat, sprinkle with cheese. Microwave 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted and eggs are heated through.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

Made a half batch for a quick breakfast-for-dinner meal, they are fantastic! A personal-size ham, egg & cheese muffin. We used a yellow bell pepper instead of green and it added a very nice flavor.
These were a huge hit at Sunday Brunch...they were easy and fun to make!
