Ham & Red Bell Pepper Breakfast Muffins





Breakfast is totally my favorite meal of the day....besides dessert of course. My favorite thing for breakfast is simply scrambled eggs with a sharp cheddar cheese, one day I will go over my scrambled egg method here because we all have our ways.



This little muffin is a perfect side for a big bowl of eggs for the family. Substitute this for toast and your golden.







INGREDIENTS (Makes 4-5 Large muffins)

1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/3 tsp of baking powder
1/4 tsp of baking soda
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 cayenne pepper
1 large egg
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 tbs butter, melted & cooled
1 tbs Canola oil
1/2 cup chives, chopped
1/2 cup diced and pan fried ham
1/2 cup sharp cheddar
1/2 cup red pepper, minced






DIRECTIONS

Pre-heat your oven to 400 and lightly oil a muffin pan.


In a large bowl, whisk together your flour, baking powder, soda, pepper, salt, and cayenne pepper.






In a medium bowl, whisk together your egg, buttermilk, oil, and butter. Stir in the chives, ham, cheese, and bell pepper.









Add your wet into the dry and mix until *just* moistened.



Bake until the tops are golden (15-20 minutes), split and smother with butter and some scrambled egg....with cheese please.

Our family loves to have a big breakfast on Saturday mornings.... but now that it's so hot, I look for things to make that are quick and easy. This sounds like it fits that perfectly. Great recipe I'm anxious to try! Hope you're feeling better!

wow, I never had anything quite like this. What won me over though are the chocolate covered frozen bananas. I still have 3 I did not devour yet, so I'll give them a try.

These are fabulous! I am definately one of those with a taste for the savory, as I seem to lacking a sweet tooth, so i will definately be making these. What a perfect make and take breakfast!! Bye, bye granola bar.
