I usually buy Jay a box of “Lil’ Bites” or “Mini Muffins” to take as a quick breakfast in the car on the way to school. He loves them, but they’re packed with sugar and are quite expensive. This week I decided to get away from the sweets in the morning and made savory muffins. They have a cornbread muffin base and I added some ham, red pepper and scallions.
Savory Breakfast Muffins:
(Yields 8 muffins)
1- 6.5oz bag cornbread and muffin mix
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup scallions, chopped
1/4 red pepper, small dice
1/2 cup ham, small dice
Mix the cornbread mix with the egg and milk (or whatever your bag mix calls for). Add diced scallions, peppers, and ham. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-17 minutes.
(Left over Muffins can be frozen and pulled from the freezer the night before for breakfast in the morning.)
