Lunch doesn’t always have to be a sandwich! You can switch it up with a salad, wrap or a savoury muffin. These Ham and Corn Muffins are easy to make and freezable.


Aren’t muffins just the greatest food invention ever created? You can make so many varieties and use fruit, chocolate, vanilla, basically anything delicious to add to them. 

This is a delicious muffin recipe, especially if you are introducing the kids to the world of savoury muffins. I freeze them and take them out in the morning, place into the lunch box and by lunchtime, they have thawed.

I always loved baking savoury muffins for my kids school lunch boxes and as afternoon snacks. I found that replacing boring lunches with these savoury muffins are such a fun alternative to the usual ham and cheese sandwich. These little guys are so yummy, and if you have them as after school snacks, reheat them for a few seconds in the microwave and add some butter to them. Mmmm delish!!!!
