Ham, Egg and Cheese Brunch Cups

Recipe courtesy of "Pinch of Yum" on behalf of ALDI
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes
Yield: 18 cups

2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons Baker's Corner All-Purpose Flour
1 cup milk
3/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1/4 teaspoon salt, plus additional, to taste, divided
2 sheets puff pastry
19 Simply Nature Organic Cage Free Brown Eggs, divided
1-2 cups Appleton Farms Spiral Sliced Half Ham, diced
chopped fresh chives
pepper, to taste

Heat oven to 375 F.

To make cheese sauce: In small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add flour and whisk to combine. Pour in milk in increments, whisking after each addition. Bring to simmer, whisking until mixture thickens. Remove mixture from heat and stir in cheese. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Set aside.

To make brunch cups: Use rolling pin to roll out puff pastry sheets until thin. Cut sheets into nine squares. Line each well of muffin tin with one puff pastry square, pressing firmly to bottom and sides; edges should come just over top of muffin tin. Fill each cup with spoonful of cheese sauce. Crack one egg into each cup and sprinkle diced ham on top of each egg.

Crack remaining egg and brush exposed portions of puff pastries with egg wash.

Bake 10-15 minutes until eggs are set. Sprinkle with chives, salt and pepper, to taste.
