Cheesy Breakfast Muffins

Try these filling breakfast muffins with ricotta and Gruyere cheese and parma ham – they are a very nice alternative to eggs in the morning. Actually I think they would also be lovely as a side dish with some spices added to the basic recipe. Enjoy!


Makes 8

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.

8-10 slices parma ham (or any other ham)
500g ricotta cheese
125g Gruyere cheese (grated)
1 egg
salt and black pepper

Line eight muffin tins with the ham slices. Put the ricotta, Gruyere, egg, salt and pepper into a bowl and mix together. Spoon the mixture into the prepared muffin tins and press down.

Bake for about 25 minute until the muffins are set.

Next time I will make a large batch so I have enough for the freezer.

    1. It could work without or you could try thin slices of courgette instead of the ham. I would recommend draining the slices first with salt. Let me know if it works.
