    cup all-purpose flour

  • 4

    eggs

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°F. In a large saucepan, bring water, butter and salt to a boil. Add flour all at once and stir until a smooth ball forms. Remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat until mixture is smooth and shiny. Drop by 1/4 cupfuls 2 inches apart onto a greased baking sheet. Bake 35 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack. Immediately split puffs open; remove and discard tops and soft dough from inside. Set aside. In a large skillet, saute green pepper and onion in butter until tender. In a medium bowl, beat eggs, salt and pepper. Add to skillet, stirring over medium heat until almost done. Add ham and cheese; stir until eggs are set. Spoon into puffs. Serve immediately.
