Savory ham and cheese muffins

Hey yummy Mummy,s and Daddy,s ,

11 am snack is a big thing in the yummy household and my savory ham and cheese muffins are perfect,.looking back to my childcare days when I worked in a creche.   Every day with out fail the kids would gather round the table , have a chat or babble and, share, enjoy or throw their snack. It was just as much about the social aspect to eating than the food… and I always looked at it as something they will take with them forever… (enjoying meal times is not always about the eating)

Every day at 11 o clock, (when I can)  I now have my coffee, and my little one has her “nack” as she calls it.. Its usually something small to tie us over to lunch, a piece of fruit, some rice cakes , crackers and cheese or these savory ham and cheese muffins. But its the time of day we spend together having a chat and enjoying each other,s company .. (shes two so this lasts around 10 mins at max)

I am not a baker… more a cook .. so these are super easy.  Between pep and cooking take around 40 mins. The mixture makes 12 and they will last a few days in an air tight container, in the fridge. They are great for lunch boxes and go well with soup too
