This is the same base recipe as my Pepperoni & Mozzarella Pizza Bites except this time I used Black Forrest Ham & Cheddar. They were a huge hit, just like the Pizza bites (Thanks again to the Noble Pig!). My husband loved taking them to work & my daughter that that having mini muffins for lunch was the most fun! They are a cinch to make & the possibilities are endless for what you can put in them. Give them a try, they make the perfect snack or appetizer!!
3/4 cup Flour (All Purpose)
3/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
3/4 cup Milk
1 Egg, lightly beaten
4 ounces Cheddar Cheese, shredded (about 1 cup)
4 ounces Black Forrest Ham, cut into small cubes (about 1 cup)
Dijon Mustard for dipping.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees & spray a mini muffin pan with non-stick spray. Chop up the ham & shred the cheese. I used Black Forrest Ham from the deli, but you could use any ham you'd like!
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder.
Then whisk in the milk and egg.
Stir the batter and divide among the mini-muffin cups.
Bake until puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
Ummmm look that those yummy cheesy edges!
I served them with Dijon Mustard to dip, but they are delicious alone too!
These things disappeared so fast, next time I might have to make 2 batches!
This recipe makes 24 mini muffins.
