Muffins are usually a sweet treat, but these savory muffins are here to put a new spin on the classic baked good.  Ham and cheese muffins make an easy grab-and-go breakfast or snack.  Enjoy one with a glass of milk and you’ve got a well-rounded dish with 20 grams of protein!

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a muffin tin with cooking spray or oil.  (Be sure to grease well.)
  2. Whisk 2 eggs in a large mixing bowl.  Add milk, melted butter, and honey.  Whisk again until well combined.
  3. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper until just combined.  Fold in the chopped ham and cheddar cheese.
  4.  Pour the batter into the muffin tin.  Bake for approximately 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees, or until a toothpick inserted into the muffin comes out clean.
  5.  Let cool and enjoy alongside a cold glass of milk!
