Creamed Ham in Toast Cups Recipe

Creamed Ham in Toast Cups Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 8 slices bread
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened, divided
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 cups chopped fully cooked ham
  • 1 cup frozen green peas, thawed
  • 1 cup whole kernel corn
  • Paprika


  • 1. Remove and discard crusts from bread; using a rolling pin, flatten to 1/8-in. thickness. Butter both sides of each slice, using 1/4 cup of butter.
  • 2. Press into eight greased muffin cups or 6-oz. custard cups. Bake at 350° for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 3. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, melt the remaining butter. Stir in flour and pepper. Gradually stir in milk and cream. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat.
  • 4. Stir in the ham, peas and corn. Cook and stir for 5 minutes or until heated through. Pour into warm toast cups; sprinkle with paprika. Yield: 4 servings.

"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."
