Creamed Ham in Toast Cups

 Creamed Ham in Toast Cups
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.

  • 2 cups chopped fully cooked ham
  • 1 cup frozen green peas, thawed
