  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

  2. In a large bowl, combine ham, sautéed vegetables and cheese. Divide the mixture evenly among muffin tins.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture over the ham and vegetable mixture, filling each muffin tin to the top.
  4. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the tops are firm to the touch and an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Remove from the oven and set aside for 5 minutes before removing from pan. Serve warm.
