Ham and Cheese Muffins

Ham and Cheese MuffinsThese savory muffins are fun for kids to make—and they’re great for breakfast, in a lunchbox or as an after-school snack. Try one of the variations: Bacon and Cheese or Sausage and Cheese.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
8 ounces ham steak, boneless, diced
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C). Lightly grease and flour 12 regular muffin tins.
  2. In a large bowl stir together the flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
  3. Whisk together the egg, buttermilk and oil in a small bowl. Stir in the ham and cheese. Using a rubber spatula, stir the egg mixture into the dry ingredients just until combined. Do not over-mix.
  4. Spoon into each of the prepared muffin tins approximately 3/4 full. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Remove from muffin tin and let cool.

Makes 12 muffins.
