Savory Breakfast Muffins (Makes 12)



The muffin craze continues at our house. This week I made another batch of Strawberry Shortcake Muffins (yes, they really are that good!). 
More muffins please!
I also came up this recipe for a savory breakfast muffin. They work just as well in a lunch box as they do for breakfast. 
This recipe is Henry-approved.
Ingredients
1 cup deli ham, diced (about 1/3 pound)
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1 cup broccoli, chopped
2 Tablespoons green onion, diced
1 egg
1 cup sour cream
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup flour
1 cup 1-minute quick oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
Savory Breakfast Muffins ready to bake.
Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Dice the deli ham into ½-inch pieces or smaller. Place in a medium bowl.

Grate the cheese. Add the cheese to the bowl with the ham.

Rinse and finely chop the broccoli. Rinse and finely chop the green onion. Add the vegetables to the ham and cheese.

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the egg, sour cream and applesauce.

Slowly stir in the flour to the egg mixture. Then add the oats, baking powder and baking soda.

Add the ham, cheese and vegetables to the muffin batter.

Scoop by large spoonfuls into a greased muffin tin.

Bake for 35 minutes, until they begin to brown at the edges. Serve warm.

Henry's Lunchbox - The Purple Lunchbox

This week, Henry packed four school lunches and purchased one cafeteria lunch.

Henry's favorite lunchbox this year has been his purple Bentgo Kids container. He chose the color himself. He especially likes all the sections in the box so that he can have lots of different foods at lunch. In January, I even purchased a set of silicone muffin cups so that he would be encouraged to use his Planetbox Shuttle as often with its single divider.
