Great for breakfast or lunch. Reheat well in the microwave.

This savory, simple to make muffin is a great way to use leftover ham. The ham and cheese add plenty of saltiness to the muffin and we loved the flavor of the fresh baby spinach. These delicious muffins are moist and tender with a slight buttery flavor. So good!
