Hawaii Mom Blog: Spinach, Cheddar, and Ham Muffins

Spinach, Cheddar, and Ham Muffins

I was shocked to find out the other day that my middle son's favorite food is spinach.  Up until a couple of years ago, he was the pickiest eater, only eating chicken nuggets, pizza and hot dogs.  Now he loves all kinds of foods and tries even more things than I do!

With his love for spinach in mind, I decided to make savory muffins with spinach, cheddar, and ham.  I adapted this recipe from Food.com, and the end result was a delicious, cheesy muffin!

I made them in both mini and regular sizes.  The minis are perfect for snacking, and the regular-sized muffins would be great for breakfast!

Spinach, Cheddar, and Ham Muffins (recipe adapted from Food.com)

  • 1 1⁄4 c milk (I used rice) 
  • 1⁄3 c butter, melted 
  • 1 egg
  • 2 c flour
  • 1⁄4 c grated Parmesan cheese 
  • 1 T baking powder
  • 1⁄4 t salt
  • 2 c chopped spinach 
  • 1 c shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 c chopped ham
  • In a large bowl mix together the milk, butter, and egg.  
  • In a separate medium bowl, combine the flour, Parmesan cheese, baking powder and salt.
  • Fold in flour mixture, spinach, cheddar cheese, and ham into the milk mixture.
  • Fill muffin cups 3/4 full.  
  • Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 18 to 20 minutes (9-11 minutes for mini muffins), until golden brown.
