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.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease six (6 ounce) ramekins.
In a medium bowl, toss together the ham, Cheddar cheese, bell pepper, and onion. Stir in the milk, cracker crumbs, and egg yolks. In a separate bowl, whip egg whites with an electric mixer until stiff. Fold into the ham and cheese mixture. Spoon the mixture into the prepared ramekins. Place the ramekins on a baking sheet.
Bake for 40 to 50 minutes in the preheated oven, until puffed and golden. Prepare the mushroom sauce according to package directions.
When the puffs are done, turn them out onto serving plates, and top with mushroom sauce.

Easy as put the fruit in your refrigerator next to the milk or on the bench next to your grain bowl , or move your coffee maker or tea kettle — about anywhere where you’ll find it.
