Muffins don’t have to be sweet especially for those who would rather have savoury. I like both but I do like savoury muffins for lunch either with salad or soup. This recipe is similar to the Egg muffins I posted earlier in the year but with flour and baking powder.
These muffins are so quick and easy to make, you don’t even have to be a ‘baker’ to make these, it’s just a case of putting together ingredients you already have in your cupboard and fridge.
To begin with I chopped up red onions, mixed peppers, ham then fried them. After the mixture had cooled, it is time for the baking part, dry and wet ingredients together ending, adding the the cooled ingredients, finishing off with grated cheddar cheese. Below is what it looked like before they went in the oven.
The baked muffins, the smell in my kitchen was mouthwatering, even if I say so myself, lol.

As with the egg muffins, you can make add ingredients of your choice. You can use gluten free flour for this recipe, for Vegans, use egg substitue, cheese alternative or omit completely.

Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, depending on the temperature of your oven.
Allow to cool slightly or completely if you are going to eat straight.
Make a batch if you are not going to eat all at once, freeze and take out what you need, just reheat in the microwave.
Enjoy your muffins with a sauce, salad, soup or on its own as a snack. It is great for lunch when friends drop by unexpectedly.
