Ham, Eggs and Cheese Breakfast Muffins

Today’s a holiday so I get to use the time to be more organized for the rest of the week. These easy and tasty breakfast “muffins” are a healthy and quick way to have breakfast for the family on those busy weekdays.  Plus, I feel they are quite healthy and filling.  Actually, I would not hesitate to serve these for breakfast or for a substantial after-school snack.

I find that mornings are the most challenging time for my gluten-free family.  Often, we have gluten-free oatmeal with cinnamon or maple syrup.  But, that gets old quickly so that is my fall back breakfast.  Fortunately, we always love it but you just can’t eat it every day.  These muffins or tin cup breakfasts fill the bill for something different. I have been known to make them the morning we eat them, as most of the ingredients are in the refrigerator, and they only take 15 minutes or so to bake.

They are so flavorful, portable and not messy.  So to be ready for the rest of the week, and as a special breakfast for today’s holiday, I present my recipe for Ham, Eggs and Cheese Breakfast Muffins.  Enjoy!
