It’s back to school time! If you’re like me, then you are always searching for a breakfast that is easy to make and appealing to finicky kids. Bonus points if that breakfast is portable! In my house, I have one kid who prefers to eat breakfast as soon as she’s awake, another who wants to eat on the way to school and a third kid who begs me to cook a feast fit for a princess every day. When I found this Ham & Cheese Muffin recipe from Weelicious, I knew I’d hit the kid-pleasing jackpot. We’ve tried different muffins before, but I like this one because the Petit Jean Smoked Ham gives it the heartiness to keep my kids full until lunch.

This kid-friendly recipe is easy to make ahead and freeze for busy weekday mornings.
