Ham and Cheddar Muffins

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by thepurpleturtle

These are so yummy! Great for breakfast or a savory snack anytime of the day. I make these every time I have leftover ham. Sometimes I sauté a little garlic and finely chopped bell peppers with the onions to add even more flavour.

These are fantastic!!!! I had some ham to use , and just couldn't find anything "different" to make. I ran across these and thought what the heck. I am SO glad I did! Just the perfect balance of flavors for us , no subs or anything ... I might consider trying swiss cheese in them at some point , but wow these are great! Thanks so much for posting!!! **edited to add , I've made these several times now , they're such a big hit. Today I was cooking a ton of food , and didn't want to mess with individual muffins so I doubled the recipe , put it all into a 13x9 pan , and baked for about 30 minutes. Now I have to cut it into squares , like a cornbread I guess , but that's ok! It worked out GREAT!!
