  • Preheat the oven to 180c/160c fan/gas 4.Lightly grease six holes of a muffin tray with butter.If you're using a silicone muffin tray,put it on a baking tray so it's easier to handle.
  • Cut the ham  and pepper into small pieces.Grate the cheese on to a plate.Divide the ham,pepper,cheese,chives and sweetcorn between the holes in the muffin tray.
  • Break the eggs into a bowl,add milk and beat until evenly mixed.Season with salt and pepper.Transfer to a jug and ten carefully pour into the muffin holes.
