Ingredients for Savory Muffins
- Baking Mix (Bisquick)
- Cheddar Cheese
- Dijon Mustard
- Deli Ham
- Poppy Seeds
How to Make Savory Muffins with Ham and Cheese
The first step is to preheat your oven. You will finish the prep by the time the oven heats up.
In a skillet or saute pan melt your butter over medium-high heat. Next, add in the finely diced onions and cook for 3 to 5 minutes until tender.
In a large mixing bowl combine baking mix and half of the cheddar cheese. You will reserve the other half of the cheddar cheese to sprinkle over the top of the muffins. Make a well in the center of your mixing bowl.
In a separate mixing bowl whisk together the milk, Dijon mustard and egg. Pour this mixture into the baking mix and cheddar cheese mixture. Stir until just moistened. Next, add in the ham and onions. Stir until well blended using minimum stir strokes as possible. Over stirring will make the muffins like hockey pucks.
Spoon this mixture evenly into a 12 cup cupcake/muffin pan. Next, sprinkle remaining cheese and poppy seeds on top of the muffins.
Place in the preheated oven and bake for 17 minutes or until golden.
Allow the ham and cheese muffins to cool in the pan for a few minutes before removing.
- For fluffy and airy muffins stir ingredients with as few stir strokes as possible.
- Buy Deli Sliced Ham. This will be easier to finely chop up versus buying a ham steak.
- Use different cheeses other than cheddar. Try Swiss Cheese!
After making this recipe I thought to pan fry the ham along with the onions. I haven’t tried this out but I am willing it would be extra delicious.
I store my leftover savory muffins in a large ziplock bag. My family members will grab one or two from the bag and pop them in the microwave for a quick breakfast.
Store leftovers in a ziplock bag or airtight container in the refrigerator. The muffins are good for up to 4 days.
To reheat: wrap muffin a paper towel and microwave for 30 seconds.
