Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 42

FOR ROASTS, CHOPS and TENDERLOINS

Cook to 145 F with 3 minute rest

Ingredients

3/4 - 1 cup ham, finely diced
3-4 tablespoons green chiles, chopped
1/4 cup green onion, minced
1 2/3 cups Monterey Jack cheese
Pastry for double-crust pie, (homemade or purchased)
5 eggs
1 2/3 cups sour cream

Cooking Directions

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. On a lightly floured board, roll out the pastry dough 1/ 16-inch thick. Using a 3-inch cutter, cut out 42 circles; re-roll scraps as needed. Fit circles into bottoms and slightly up sides of lightly greased 2 1/2-inch muffin pans. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix together ham, chiles, onion and cheese and divide equally among muffin cups. In large bowl, beat together eggs, add sour cream and stir until smooth. Spoon about 1 tablespoon into each muffin cup. Bake until puffed and light brown, 20-25 minutes. Cool in pans 5 minutes; lift out.
Serve warm or let cool on wire racks. If made ahead, wrap cooled quiches airtight, and refrigerate overnight. Reheat, uncovered, in a 350 degrees F. oven for about 10 minutes.

Makes 3 1/2 dozen.

Also try serving along side Bacon and Mushroom Bite Size Quiche.

Pork, Be Entertaining

About the Cut: Ham

Cured ham is leg meat that has been dry- or wet-cured. Hams are labeled according to the amount of water added to the ham during the curing process. Because the leg muscle is a well-exercised part of the hog, ham is surprisingly low in fat.

About the Cooking Method: Roasting

COOKING BASICS: 1) Preheat oven to 325 to 350 degrees F. (for pork tenderloin, roast at 450 degrees F.). 2) Trim much of the exterior fat from the roast; if roast has no fat cover, rub the surface with 1 to 2 teaspoons of oil. Season roast with herbs and other seasonings, if desired. 3) Place roast on rack in shallow roasting pan. 4) Do not cover; place in oven and roast to an internal temperature of 150 to 155 degrees F. for medium doneness. 5) Remove roast from oven. Allow it to "rest" for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing. This resting period allows juices to redistribute. Internal temperature will rise approximately another 5 degrees F.

Tips and Tricks

Butcher's Tips

All varieties of cured ham are either boneless or bone-in. Bone-in hams are traditionally considered more attractive and boneless are considered easier to serve because of simplified carving. Bone-in hams are available in a variety of shapes - whole or as a shank or butt half. Boneless hams also are available in a variety of sizes.

Good Appetizers
by CJ 01/15/2010
These are good as part of an appetizer buffet. And good for both brunch or watching a game. I like to use my mini muffin tins for small bites. But the regular size works well too. Also can make ahead the day before adn they reheat well.
