1/4 cup

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400°F.

Continue cooking, gently stirring, 1 minute or until cheese is melted.
  5. Heat broiler.

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.
