A bit lazy to make bread, crusts for quiches are too troublesome. Don’t want to make any pastry, too much to wash up.

As usual, the muffin comes the the rescue! Almost always the easiest and fastest to bake, with the breakfast taste of ham or bacon or sausage, cheese and chives. After a few trials, I think this muffin is really good and delicious. However, it is as delicious as your ingredients your put into it. Therefore, always use the most delicious cheese, the best ham or bacon and the freshest veggies. I added an egg into each muffin to add a bit of glamour into each.

They are super yummy, and will be a hit with adults and children alike.
