Bear Ham and Cheese Muffin bento (with recipe)

We are back and and it's back to basics. I managed to bake these yummy muffins during the weekend and here is how a cute silicone cup could transform a simple muffin to a cute one. Ours never made it to the freezer, just refrigerator for two days at the most, hubby is the culprit, lol.

Make a batch, freeze them (unless they get eaten first!) and reheat later. They are great for busy mornings when you have to race out the door and they are quite delicious, for breakfast or anytime of the day. I intend to bake these more often so that we have them ready to grab and go for lunch boxes.

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup ham, diced
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 350º.
  2. Grease a standard muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and black pepper. Stir to combine.
  4. In another bowl add milk, eggs, vegetable oil and ham. Mix until combined.
  5. Stir the wet mixture into the dry mixture just until moistened, don’t over stir!
  6. Scoop into muffin cups to ¾ full. There is enough batter to fill one dozen muffin wells.
  7. Bake at 350º for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
