Ham, cheese and leek muffins

Those savoury muffins dissapeared almost immediately after being baked. In my family opinion they were very tasty, although children did not like them. They were fluffy, salty. I would recommend them for a quick brunch. 
Ingredients for 6 muffins:
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 leek
  • 140g flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp bicarbonate soda
  • 1 egg
  • 150 ml Greek - style natural yogurt
  • 25g melted butter
  • 15g grated Cheddar cheese + some to sprinkle
  • 75g chopped, cooked ham or susage or frankfurters.

Wash the leek and finely chop it. Heat the oil on frying pan over a low heat. Add the leek and cook until leek is soft. Remove form the heat and set aside to cool.
Chop the ham, and grate the cheese, set aside. Melt the butter and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 200C. Line muffin tin with paper cases.

Sift the flour, baking powder, soda into a big bowl and whisk together. 
In a measuring jug whisk together the yogurt and egg. Pour this mixture into the dry ingredients. Pour melted and cooled down butter. Add the leek, cheese and ham. Leave some  ham to add on the top of each muffin.

Spoon this batter into paper cases, sprinkle with cheese and ham. Bake for 20 min until well risen. Cool them down on wire rack. Enjoy !!
