Make ahead Lunch 

Just pop these Ham, Egg and Cheese Muffins into the freezer after you have cooled them. Otherwise, you can make them ahead and store them in an airtight container in the fridge for later use. If you want them to last longer, please freeze them. 

This recipe is easy to make too. Not only is it delicious but it doesn’t take a lot of effort. They really are great warmed up, but they can also be eaten cold. We like to dip them into Honey Mustard. They really taste like a ham sandwich. Mmmm. 

These little lunch muffins make life easier on busy school mornings that’s for sure. My Husband actually likes to take them in his lunch as well. Convenience at it’s finest. What a treat. 

These actually help me to eat too! There are so many times I skip meals because I just get too sidetracked. I know, I know, that’s bad. I can’t help it though. Sometimes it’s 3pm and I realize I haven’t eaten anything all day. These are great, even in the morning with a coffee. Take them in the car with you so that you don’t have to go through a drive through on long road trips and just enjoy!

    What a great recipe, I always struggle with lunch ideas for me and my little boy, it’s hard to think of new things that well both like. The fact that you can make it in advance is even better!

    I just made a batch an hour ago. The muffins are very yummy. The batter seemed a bit runny so I added another 3/4 cup of flour. The 12 muffins turned out really well. Great recipe.

    After freezing, do you just allow them to thaw & then microwave?
