Toast Cup

12 slices sandwich bread
1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, melted


6 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O Lakes® Deli American
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter
1/4 pound sliced deli ham, chopped
Dash pepper, if desired


Heat oven to 400°F.

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

Reserve 2 slices cheese; cut each slice into 12 thin strips. Cut remaining slices into bite-sized pieces.

Beat water and eggs in bowl with whisk until well mixed.

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in 10-inch skillet. Pour eggs into skillet; sprinkle with ham. Cook over medium heat, gently lifting portions with spatula so uncooked portion flows underneath, 3-5 minutes or until eggs are set.  Sprinkle with cheese pieces and pepper, if desired. Continue cooking, gently stirring, 1 minute or until cheese is melted.

Fill each toast cup with about 1/3 cup egg mixture. Place 2 strips cheese on each toast cup.

Cranberry Swirl Sweet Rolls
November 24, 2015 by Mallory

One of my favorite parts of the Thanksgiving meal is my husband’s homemade cranberry sauce. It’s a tart and sweet sauce, with hints of orange zest and brown sugar. I always have him make twice the amount needed because I love having leftovers. This year, I decided that rather than serving it alongside leftover turkey and mashed potatoes, I was going to try something new.
