Ham and Cheese Mini Frittatas
¼ pound deli-sliced Swiss cheese, finely chopped
¼ pound ham steak, finely chopped
¼ cup half-and-half
3 Tablespoons chopped fresh chives
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
½ teaspoon hot sauce
8 large eggs, well beaten
Preheat oven to 375° F.
Brush a 12-muffin tin liberally with the butter. Divide the chopped cheese and ham evenly among the muffin cups. Combine the half-and-half, chives, salt, pepper, hot sauce, and eggs, and fill the cups up to just below the rim with the egg mixture. Bake the frittatas until golden and puffy, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove to a plate with a small spatula and serve.
Makes 12 mini frittatas.
