My grandmother taught me many of her recipes in show-and-cook sessions. Usually, we had this dish on Mondays, following a Sunday lunch of ham, peas and corn. These buttery cups are one of my favorite ways to use leftover ingredients.

"My husband and I just had this with the leftover ham from Christmas. It was delicious! I didn't have enough cream so I added more milk and it turned out fine."
