Jane's Ham Puffs

Rated as 4.67 out of 5 Stars

"My friend Jane in Denver first served this to me in the 80's and I've been making ever since. Different way to use cooked ham, and very nice for a brunch-type serving. Mini ham and cheese souffles are baked until golden, then served with a mushroom sauce. You may substitute the mushroom sauce with another sauce if you wish."

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease six (6 ounce) ramekins.

  4. When the puffs are done, turn them out onto serving plates, and top with mushroom sauce.

This is just so-so. Definitely different way to serve eggs and ham. I would watch the baking time--mine came out a little dry. This recipe calls for "mushroom sauce"--I assume it means a white s...

My husband and I loved this recipe. Great way to use up ham in a nice, light dish. will make again soon

Very good. The kids weren't real thrilled about it, but my hubby and I loved it. Would make an excellent brunch dish.

Like a souffle, it rises beautifully and deflates quickly. Not to worry, the texture is souffle-like, and the flavor is fantastic. Used a combination of white and yellow cheddar and red & yello...

Awesome recipe! Used a little more cheese but otherwise followed exactly. Super easy once you get whipping the whites done.
