You have got to make these leftover ham or turkey savory breakfast muffins! My kids love them as an on the go meal in the morning, and they’re a great item to make after the holidays and one of the best muffin recipes ever. Sponsored by Horizon Organic. (originally published 3/18)

Packed with ham, cheese, peppers and anything else you think you might love these veggie muffins are loaded with flavor.  

We actually call them biscuit muffins because the consistency is a cross between the two, and they’re best eaten right out of the oven…melt a tab of butter in the middle for extra goodness. 😉

  • Breakfast muffins are great to integrate a lot of ingredients and leftovers into one finger food for busy mornings, and save well for the day after too.

Look!!

So good right??!!

Picture a cheesy biscuit with bits of ham, bell peppers, onions, and a creamy butter flavor. That’s what these are.

  • Just throw it all together, scoop into a muffin pan and they’re ready to go when time is short (always for us) and you need a hearty breakfast.

You know what’s great about these savory breakfast muffins, other than they are delicious…most of the ingredients you already have at home I bet!  We always have Horizon Organic milk, butter, eggs, and several different types of cheese on hand.

Since I cook almost every night I always have onions on hand (inexpensive way to add lots of flavor to almost any dish), so the only thing I usually need is ham.

  • BUT after the holidays I always have a lot of leftover ham so these are always on the menu then!

As for the bell peppers they are optional, but a great add in for flavor, color, and a bit of texture too.

I tend to use what is on hand. If I didn’t have ham, or if you wanted to make a meat less option you could leave that part out.

Like I said, the texture of these are a cross between breakfast biscuits and muffins. With all the goodies inside they don’t rise and puff up like a traditional sweet muffin would, which makes sense, but I guarantee they will be a favorite in your house too when you try them.

I love homemade savory muffins but tend to run short on time, that’s why I love the ease of these.

Let us know what you think when you make them! 😉

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl combine your self rising flour, eggs, melted butter, milk, and garlic salt. Mix well, it will be lumpy.
  • Fold in all diced vegetables and ham into your dough slowly so they don’t break apart a lot but so that they are integrated and all flour is mixed in.
  • Line muffin pan with muffin papers (or you can use non stick spray and not use liners). Fill each cup 3/4-full. (they won’t rise a lot to you can fill quite a bit)
  • Put in oven for about 23 minutes or until tops are lightly golden brown.
  • Breakfast biscuits / muffins are best when served immediately. Store leftovers in air tight container or storage bag for best results. Can freeze as well in air tight freezer bags.
