I loved my last batch of Pizza Muffins so much that I decided to make some more. This time I made up my own recipe for savory muffins and added ham and pineapple chunks. They taste EXACTLY like a Hawaiian Pizza but in muffin form! Cheesy and yummy and perfect portable treats!
Ingredients: (6 muffins)
1/2 all-purpose flour
1/2 yellow cornmeal
1 Tbsp sugar
1-1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 c buttermilk
1/4 c pizza sauce
1/2 stick (4 Tbsp) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1/2 c chopped ham
1/2 c pineapple chunks
1/2 c shredded Mozzarella cheese
1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease or line 6 muffin cups.
2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt, Italian seasoning and baking soda.
3. In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, pizza sauce, melted butter and egg until well blended. Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients. Gently stir to blend. Stir in ham, pineapple and cheese. Batter will be lumpy.
4. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the tops are golden and a thin knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
