These ham, pineapple and parmesan muffins are great to make if you’re pushed for time, as they make a perfect ‘grab and go’ breakfast! Plus this recipe is super flexible, so you can use whatever ingredients you prefer. For example, if you’re not a fan of parmesan cheese, simply swap it our for cheddar or experiment with chopped spinach for an extra veggie punch. Store any leftovers in an air-tight container in the fridge and warm up in the microwave before serving!
