  Cornmeal 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Shortening 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Water 6 Teaspoon
For filling
  Shredded mozzarella cheese 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Green onion 1 Tablespoon, finely chopped
  Eggs 2
  Milk 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Red pepper sauce 6 Drop

Sprinkle with cold water, tossing with fork until all flour is moistened and pastry cleans side of bowl.

2. Gather pastry into a ball. Divide in half. Press firmly against bottom and side of two 10-ounce microwavable quiche dishes or custard cups. Prick bottoms and sides thoroughly with fork. Sprinkle cheese and onion in shells.

3. Place dishes on upside-down microwavable saucers in microwave oven. Microwave uncovered on High 2 minutes; rotate dishes 1/2 turn. Prick any bubbles with fork. Microwave 1 minute 30 seconds to 3 minutes longer or until pastry appears dry and flaky.

4. In 2-cup microwavable measuring cup, beat eggs, milk, 1/4 teaspoon salt and the pepper sauce with fork. Stir in ham. Microwave uncovered on Medium-High (70%) 3 to 4 minutes, stirring after 1 minute, until warm. Stir; pour into shells. Place filled shells on upside-down microwavable saucers in microwave oven.

5. Microwave uncovered on Medium-High 4 to 5 minutes, rotating dishes 1/2 turn after 2 minutes, until center is almost set. Cover loosely and let stand on flat, heatproof surface 3 minutes.
