Breakfast for a Crowd

It's always nice to prepare breakfast for company. This one is easy to make with little fuss in the kitchen. Also try John Wayne eggs on page 194 in Tastes & Treasures cookbook and Breakfast Casserole on page 195.

Breakfast for a Crowd

12 thin slices of deli ham (about 4 ounces)
1/2 cup salsa
12 large eggs
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (about 2 ounces)

1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

2. Coat 12 muffin cups with cooking spray. Arrange 1 slice of ham in each cup, molding it to the shape of the cup. The ham may rise out of the edges of the cup. Spread 1 teaspoon of salsa in the bottom of each cup.

3. Break 1 egg into each ham-lined cup. Top with another teaspoon of salsa, and 2 teaspoons shredded cheddar cheese.

4. Bake until the cheese melts and the eggs are set, about 20 minutes.

TIP: Replace the salsa in this recipe with finely chopped fresh vegetables of your choice - sauted onions, peppers, tomatoes, or mushroom.
