Ham Puffy

This is one of hubby’s favorites! It got lost in the transfer from the old blog, so i’m putting it back so I can find it when i need it!

Great for left over ham! I ususally freeze the ham in little 2/3 cup baggies so i am ready to go when the mood strikes!

The recipe uses everything in your kitchen! Not hard to make, just lots of clean up!


Cooking spray
2 teaspoons dry breadcrumbs
1 can corn, drained
⅓ cup thinly sliced green onions
⅔ cup diced smoked ham (about 3 ounces)
¼ cup all-purpose flour
¾ cup fat-free milk
½ cup (2 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon ground red pepper
2 large egg yolks
4 large egg whites
½ tablespoon cream of tartar


Preheat oven to 325°. Coat a 1½-quart soufflé dish with cooking spray; sprinkle with breadcrumbs.

Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray. Place over medium-high heat. Add corn and green onions; sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat, and stir in ham; set aside.

Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Place flour in a small saucepan. Gradually add milk, stirring with a wire whisk until blended. Cook over medium heat 3 minutes or until thickened, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in cheese and pepper.

Beat egg yolks in a medium bowl with mixer at high speed until thick and pale (about 5 minutes). Gradually add hot milk mixture to egg yolks, stirring constantly. Stir in corn mixture; set aside.

Beat egg whites (at room temperature) and cream of tartar in a large bowl with mixer at high speed until stiff peaks form. Gently stir one-fourth of egg white mixture into corn mixture. Gently fold in remaining egg white mixture.

Pour mixture into prepared soufflé dish. Bake at 325° for 1 hour or until puffed and golden. Serve immediately.

I cut it in four! Reheats very nicely for lunch!
