Ham And Pineapple Pizza Muffins


I was hit by "3-30itis" as they say it in the Campbell soup ads on telly. Severe hunger pangs I tell you! I picked up this little book called "The Muffin Bible" and started flipping pages. I have in the past experimented with a few recipes from this book and I have always had to make major modifications. The recipes have obviously been printed without testing first or have simply been scaled up or down, again without testing. But I do like the ideas that are presented in the book … more than 100 fun combinations to make both sweet and savoury muffins can’t be all that bad. This time around I was looking for a savoury snack and I stopped on the page that said "Pizza Muffin", my curiosity piqued. Just scanning through the ingredients, I mentally made a note of some modifications and additions I would make and set out to gather my ingredients. It actually took me around 15 minutes to assemble, mix and pop the trays in the oven. In another 20-25 minutes, delicious golden topped Pizza Muffins oozing with pockets of cheese were ready to be devoured.
