Hunk of Meat Monday: Egg and Ham Muffins

It is hard to believe two weeks of school are under the belt.

first day of school
With the new school year underway I am trying a few different breakfast recipes trying to find on-the go breakfast ideas besides just pop tarts. I personally love these egg and ham muffins are full of protein and also able to be frozen for future breakfast too.

Egg and Ham Muffins
I started with a dozen eggs in a large bowl and whisk.

I used 8 ounces of diced ham.

Then pour 1/3 cup into greased muffin tins or you can also use mini muffin tins for bit sized muffins.

Bake for 20-25 minutes on 350 degrees. The muffins will be slightly brown and spring back when you press on them.

    Just baked these egg, ham & cheese muffins. Great! But after I freeze them, how do I reheat for on the go? Do they have to be thawed? Microwaved or oven??
