I’m someone who loves to cook, but during the week, the last thing I want to do is actually cook breakfast. While that means that sometimes I’ll just grab yogurt and granola, it also means that sometimes, I just skip it and snack all morning. So, meals like these ham and broccoli breakfast muffins are perfect for me. I can make up a batch while making dinner one night and pop them in the freezer when they’re cooled. Then I can just take out one, heat and eat. It’s perfect for me. There’s no thought about what I’m going to eat, there’s no (silent) whining about fixing it, it’s already ready to go. It takes the excuse out of my mornings and also helps me to get a better start to the day. Paired with a smoothie or couple pieces of fruit, it’s a simple and easy breakfast. This recipe is originally for a wheat biscuit mix, but I frequently use a gluten free biscuit mix and it works just fine.

Ham & Broccoli Breakfast Muffins

These little muffins are delicious the first morning, and any leftovers you have, just pop them in the freezer for later. Add a piece of fruit for a quick and easy breakfast.
