Ingredients list for the Ham, Cheese and Tomato Muffins

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 7  minutes
Total time: 22 minutes
Serves:  6-8 

  • 1/2 jar of dried tomatoes, diced
  • 1 1/2 cup (150g) all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup (50g) parmesan
  • 2/5 cup (10cl) of olive oil
  • 2/5 cup (10cl) of milk
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 tablespoon (10g) butter, softened
  • 2 handfuls of fresh basil
  • 3 1/2 oz (100g) of smoked ham, diced
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • Salt and fresh cracked pepper


1. Preheat oven to 360°F (180°C).
2. In a bowl, mix flour and baking powder.
3. In another bowl,  beat the eggs and add oil, mustard, milk and butter. Pour over flour and mix. Don’t overmix because this makes the muffins tough and hard. Season with salt and pepper.
4. When the dough is smooth, add dried tomatoes, ham, Parmesan and chopped basil. Pour the batter into muffin paper liners, muffin tin or ramekins. Bake until golden brown — 7-10 minutes for small muffins, 15-20 minutes for big muffins. Check for doneness with a knife blade. Allow to cool before serving with a salad as a starter.
