Cheddar Ham Cups

When a college classmate and I threw a party for our professor, a friend contributed these savory appetizers. Everyone in the class requested the recipe before the party was done. Try the cups with chicken instead of ham if you'd like. -Brandi Ladner Gulfport, Mississippi

    This a great, simple recipe to make either for an appetizer or just as a snack. Its doesn't have to many ingredients and it tastes delicious!

    I like the simplicity of this recipe, however, does anyone know how to make it without mayo? I wasnt a complete fan of the taste, so I shaved 1/4 cup off and added spicy brown and more dijon instead. I used regular muffin tins and this made 26 muffins. Yes they are easy to burn, I baked for 10 mins.

    I used the mini muffin tins or the loaf pan - and then added all the ingredients to the pans and I changed the oven cook time 9 to 12 minutes - makes the tops crispy when left in for that extra minute - word of warning... (NOT TURN ON THE BROILER KNOB TO BROWN THESE MUFFINS - CATCH ON FIRE EASY)... yummy!

    This is great ' for on the go' grabs. Easy to make and make them ahead of time. Great snack. Another one of TOH recipes that I have been using since they were first issued.

    I made these with smoked deli chicken, as suggested, and jalapeno jack cheese. They were very good. I can't wait to try it with ham and reg. cheddar.
