Recipe: Ham & Cheese Mini Muffins

My daughter loves ham and cheddar cheese.  I decided to make these Ham & Cheese Mini Muffins to have an easy, pop it out of the freezer and into the lunch box treat.

They turned out really great!  They are a little more like biscuits than muffins.  If your kid would eat such things, you could add in some peppers or onions or green onions.  Sundried tomatoes would be yummy, too, I think.  Unfortunately, my daughter is a little reluctant to eat such things without me there to encourage her.  *sigh*

Ham & Cheese Mini Muffins

1 1/2 c white flour
1 c whole wheat flour
3 1/3 tsp baking powder
1 c shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 c cubed ham
3 eggs
3 Tbsp melted butter
1 c milk

Combine all ingredients and mix until combined.  Don't overmix.  Scoop into mini muffin pans lined with muffin cups or well greased.  Bake at 375 F for 12-14 minutes or lightly browned and a knife comes out clean.

Pin It!


  1. nom nom, think I'll have to have a go at these!

  2. I'd love to hear how these work out in the lunches! I tried a corn muffin base for ham and cheese muffins and the kiddo said they were really hard and "yucky" by lunchtime, even though he loved them when they were fresh. Sweet flour based muffins always get eaten, so I'm thinking a flour based savory muffin might do better than the corn one =)
