1/2 cup melted butter

1/4 tsp salt

1 cup shredded Swiss cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 9 or 10-inch pie plate with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.

In a medium bowl combine the milk, butter, salt and pepper.  Lightly beat the eggs and add to the milk mixture.  Add the biscuit mix and stir until well blended.  Pour the mixture into the prepared pie plate; sprinkle with the Swiss cheese and ham.  Using the back of a large spoon, gently press the ham and cheese into the mixture.

Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.  Let stand for about 10 minutes before cutting to serve.
