Salty Muffins with ham and green peas!

It has been a while since last time I posted a recipe for salty muffins…I actually only have one recipe for salty muffins on this blog that I posted back in 2010 when I first opened this blog, those where The Pizza Muffins…oh gosh…looking back at those pictures makes wanna hide myself underground…I hope one day I’ll get the time to re-post all my earliest recipes…it’s a dream I already know will hardly become true…

Anyways, back to the muffins, yesterday morning I felt like cooking, all I wanted to do was to put on my apron and try to be creative…unfortunately all I found left in my fridge was ham and a bag of frozen green peas…I made them be enough and came up with this simple muffin recipe.

Let me know what you guys think about it!

Ingredients (makes 11 muffins):

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 small eggs
  • 1/2 cup frozen green peas
  • 4-5 leaves of fresh mint
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 50 g ham
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder

In a pan heat up 2 tbsp of olive oil, throw in the frozen peas

add some fresh mint, about 2-3 tbsp of water, 1/2 tsp of salt, cover with a lid and let cook for about 15 min, or until peas are done

Meanwhile in a bowl sift flour and baking powder

In a separate bowl combine eggs and milk

pour in the melted butter

and with a whisk beat up all the ingredients together, then add salt and pepper

Stir well next add 1/2 cup of grated parmesan cheese

Pour the wet ingredients into the the flour

Next up, chop up some ham

and add the ham and the cooked and cooled down peas into the mixture

Stir well until all ingredients are well combined

then divide the misture into 11 muffin cups

Bake at 180 C (375 F) for about 30 min. Then Remove from the oven

and let them cool down

then serve!

Easy as that! Give this a try!
