HAM AND CHEESE MUFFINS
Last friday we had a party for Sebastian's birthday; I made a few things, but the most successful have been the focaccia and these muffins. Ok, they are not properly italian but...they disapperead in no time, so this means they're good! My friend Zaira asked me for the recipe..and here it is!!! Muffins are really great for parties. Quick and easy. And soooo good!!!!
Ingredients for 10 muffins:
250 gr self raising flour
200 ml milk
50 gr butter (melted)
100 gr honey roast ham
150 gr Cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese (to sprinkle on top)
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Lightly grease a muffin tin ( or use muffin cups like I do!- it's quicker).
Cut the ham into 1cm chunks, and grate the Cheddar (or chop it roughly).
Now divide the dry ingredients from the wet ones.
In a bowl mix the beaten eggs, milk and melted butter ( remember to add it only when cold, otherwise it cooks the eggs!).
Sieve the flour, salt, ham and chees into a large bowl and mix well.
Now pour in the egg and milk mixture in the large bowl and mix thoroughly.
Spoon into the muffin tin and sprinkle the tops with Parmesan cheese .
Cook in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
Place on a wire rack to cool.
