The best thing about these savory muffins is that they are freezer-friendly. They are always best on the day they are made, but you can pop them in the freezer for later too in case you want a savoury snack in a hurry. You can reheat them for a few seconds in the microwave or a couple of minutes in the oven and they will taste like fresh from the oven. They are perfect as breakfast, brunch, lunch box filler, serve as a side to soup, or you can eat them on their own or slather them with some butter.

Variations

These Ham and Cheese Muffins are loaded with ham, cheddar cheese, and scallions, but you can absolutely use or substitute them with other add-ins. Here are some of my favorites:

  • Cooked bacon
  • Cooked sausage
  • Sun-dried tomatoes
  • Chopped spinach
  • Chives
  • Red bell pepper
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Zucchini (make sure you squeeze the liquid out of the zucchini)

How to Store

Let the muffins cool completely before storing them. Pack them into an airtight container and keep them at room temperature for up to 4 days. Refrigerating muffins is not recommended because it alters the texture of the muffins and can make them go stale quickly. But you can freeze them instead. If properly frozen, they will be good for around 2-3 months. Muffins can be thawed completely at room temperature. You can also reheat them for a few seconds in the microwave or a couple of minutes in the oven.
