Reduced Fat Ham & Cheese Muffins

Reduced Fat Ham & Cheese Muffins

Are you a ham and cheese lover?  Then these muffins are for you.  I found these in a recipe book I have had for while now and they quickly became a family favorite.  Not only are they easy to put together, they taste fantastic.  After I make a batch of these yummy muffins I store them in the fridge and they make a perfect quick breakfast and are great for on the go.  My boys and husband love these muffins.  They get excited when ever they see a batch baking in the oven.  Give these delicious Ham & Cheese Muffins a try and tell us what you think!
