Mini Ham and Cheese Cups

These cute little cups are great as an appetizer or for breakfast!

1 (2 1/2 ounce) package sliced cooked ham, chopped
2 green onions, diced
1/2 cup shredded Monterrey jack cheese
1 egg
1 1/2 t Dijon mustard
1/8 t pepper
1 (8 ounce) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients; set aside. Divide crescent roll dough into 24 portions. Press into greased miniature muffin cups that have been sprayed with cooking spray. Spoon 1 tablespoon ham mixture into each cup. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown.

TIP OF THE DAY: When you have a recipe like this one that calls for a small amount of a vegetable- like green onions- and you have to buy a whole bunch, just go a head and dice up all of them and drop them in a small freezer bag (that you write the date on) and throw them in your freezer. The next time you have a recipe that needs a small amount, you'll be ready to go!
