Lunch Box Muffins

Savoury spinach, ham and cheese muffins that are perfect for packing in lunches, or if you don’t have time for breakfast just grab one of these on the way out the door.

Printable Recipe
1 pkg frozen chopped spinach
1 1/2 cups chopped cooked ham
1 small onion, thinly sliced.
1/4 cup feta cheese
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
6 eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/4 cup flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp parsley
1/4 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Microwave spinach according to package directions, then drain excess water. In a large bowl, combine spinach, ham, onion and cheeses. In another bowl beat eggs until foamy, then blend in oil. Add the dry ingredients; beat until smooth. Stir in spinach mixture until just blended. Spoon into greased muffin tins. Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes until lightly browned. May be served warm or cold.

These muffins worked out great for packing with us when we were on the go. Tony and I both took them to work, and I packed them in the boys lunches for daycare. Cole was thrown off by the fact that the muffin wasn’t sweet like normal muffins so he didn’t really eat much of them. Bennett didn’t seem to be bothered by it though, he ate them up. They freeze great too.
