Ham And Cheese Muffins

There are few things in this world my husband loves more than ham. Me, our baby, his mama. And I think that’s it. Way back at Easter he asked me to cook a ham for his mother’s visit to town. It was going to be just the three of us so I knew I would be left with massive amounts of ham. 

Boy, was I right. I sent some home with my mother-in-law, I made a quiche, I made a pizza and I made cheesy ham muffins. And I STILL had ham left over. Thank goodness for our deep freezer. 

I think of all the things I made the cheesy ham muffins were the biggest hit. Paired with some roasted green beans and a fresh fruit salad and we had ourselves a meal!


Ham And Cheese Muffins


  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup milk (I used 2 %)
  • 1 egg, beaten well
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups cubed ham (great if you have any in the freezer left over from Easter)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2-3 scallions, diced


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 and line two muffin pans.
  2. Combine the first seven ingredients. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Fold in your ham, cheese and scallions
  4. Pour into muffin pans, filling each cup 3/4 full.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes at 350.

    I am giving it a try, I am a little leery because to me ham and cheese should be savory, and that is a lot of sugar and vanilla. fingers crossed

    ok first ones out of oven. and tasted. too sweet for me but I can see how others would like em. the muffin part tastes kinda like pancakes.
