Ham-and-Swiss Corn Muffins

Hands-on time 22 mins
Total time 52 mins
Yield Makes 1 dozen
Heating the pan beforehand results in a nice crispy bottom.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup diced cooked ham
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted and divided
  • 2 cups self-rising white cornmeal mix
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) shredded Swiss cheese
  • Vegetable cooking spray

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Brown ham in 1 Tbsp. melted butter in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 5 to 6 minutes.

  2. Heat a 12-cup muffin pan in oven 5 minutes.

  3. Combine cornmeal mix and sugar in a medium bowl; make a well in center of mixture.

  4. Stir together buttermilk, egg, and Dijon mustard; add to cornmeal mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Stir in remaining 3 Tbsp. melted butter, cheese, and ham. Remove pan from oven, and coat with cooking spray. Spoon batter into hot muffin pan, filling almost completely full.

  5. Bake at 425° for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden. Remove from pan to a wire rack, and let cool 10 minutes.
