Ham and Cheese Muffins

There always seems to be plenty of sweet things that come out of my kitchen so this week I decided to make a few more savoury things.  First up was these super easy ham and cheese muffins.  Done with good old fashioned hand whisking and still only took 10mins to put together, less if you have some ingredients ready.  You can add herbs or spices of your liking, I didn't this time as Ella was under my feet and wasn't until I finished I thought of it!  Next time I'm definitely adding some spices to give them an extra flavour kick, maybe some paprika... mmm I love paprika! But these work great especially for kids, and because they freeze well they make a perfect lunchbox treat without the sugar!

Ham and Cheese Muffins
Makes approx 15 medium sized muffins

  • 1/2 cup yoghurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 1/4 cups SR flour
  • 1/2-1 tsp salt (depending on your preferred taste)
  • 1/2-1 tsp pepper (depending on your preferred taste)
  • 100g diced bacon/ham
  • 80g grated cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees and line a muffin tray with liners.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together yoghurt, eggs and milk so they are combined.
  3. Add flour, salt and pepper and whisk until well combined and smooth.
  4. Add ham and cheese and using a spoon mix together well (can do with a whisk but easier with chunky items to just use a spoon).
  5. Fill muffin liners with mixture to just under 3/4 full and bake for approx 20mins.
  6. Allow to cool and store in an airtight container. 
  7. These freeze really well for lunchboxes during the week.
ENJOY!  :-)
