Ham N Cheese Muffins

One of my family's favorite dishes are these muffins. They measure the ingredients and grease the muffin tins, The muffins not only round out most meals, but they also make great grab-and-go snacks on busy mornings.—Joy Cochran, Roy, Washington

    Very quick and tasty. The onions and butter do add quite a bit of flavor, so I wouldn't omit to modify or the end result will be off. I'd make this to serve on a brunch buffet or as a side bread with soup. Will definitely make again.

    These aren't bad. I used dried chives instead of dirtying up a skillet to saut? onions. Omitted butter. I doubled the recipe and baked them in a mini muffin tin to serve as party appetizers.

    Great way to use leftover ham. I thought the dough was a bit dry but the final product turned out great.

    The onions were a bit strong in this for me. Next time will try cutting them back a bit. Otherwise they were quite good.

    Very good muffins and so easy to make! The only thing I would have done differently is saute the onions with unsalted butter. My muffins tasted a little too salty but other than that they are great!

    I've been making these for awhile now, husband loves them. We have tried similar recipes, but the onion sauteed with the butter makes these. I double the recipe and freeze them, they make a good quick supper, too!

    I just made this muffins and they are the best. My kids each had one for breakfast this morning. They are easy and moist. I am going to try and freeze them to see how they turn out.
