Ham 'n' Cheese Muffins Recipe

While living in Oregon, I frequented a local restaurant that served these muffins. They wouldn't share the recipe, so I came up with my own creation.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:18 servings


  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups diced fully cooked ham
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, mustard and cumin. In another bowl, whisk eggs and buttermilk. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in ham and 1-1/4 cups cheese.
  • 2. Fill greased muffin cups two-thirds full. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
