3/4 cup (3 ounces) reduced-fat shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup finely chopped green onions (about 1 bunch)
1/2 cup frozen whole-kernel corn, thawed
1/3 cup (2 ounces) diced extralean ham
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°.
Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 5 ingredients (through pepper) in a medium bowl; stir with a whisk. Make a well in center of mixture. Combine buttermilk, egg substitute, and oil; add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Fold in cheese, green onions, corn, and diced ham.
Spoon batter into 12 muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 23 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove muffins from pan; place on a wire rack.
Made to recipe except used 1/4 tsp cayenne. Recommend you taste the ham & cheese first to judge how salty they are and perhaps increase the salt. Nice on a cold & rainy night, served warm from the oven with CL's two-bean soup with kale. Probably will be good with other hearty soups or a chili.
I think these muffins are quite bland. I would add more salt for sure and double the amount of ham. They are lacking in flavor and I followed the recipe exactly. They do need to be heated up and served with soup or something! I will try to make them one more time with the additional ham and salt to see if the flavor improves
I made them exactly as written and I would say depending upon how salty your ham is, they probably need more salt in the batter.
I used was maple cured and so I think they were counting on the salt from the ham to salt these up.
I made 36 mini muffins. I liked these a lot and will make them again. I think they go great with a soup for a light lunch.
I didn't think these were terrible, but I didn't really want seconds either. They are good cut in half and toasted with butter but I didn't think they held up on their own. I used regular (not lowfat) cheese and ham but followed the recipe exactly otherwise.
It was a nice change from the sweet muffins, but it definitely needed a little butter and the group of women I made them for didn't rave over them. I followed the directions exactly. They definitely turned out pretty.
