Ingredients

100 
g 
frozen pea
300 
g 
plain flour
1 
tablespoon 
baking powder
Pinch dry mustard powder
Sea salt and black pepper
1/2 
teaspoon 
mixed herbs or 2 tsp fresh chives, finely chopped
1 
large egg
100 
g 
boursin cheese
200 
ml 
full fat milk
50 
g 
cooked ham, diced
75 
g 
Cheddar cheese, grated
Butter for greasing

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4.
  2. Prepare a 12 hole muffin tin by greasing well with butter. Bring a large pan of lightly salted water to the boil and blanch the frozen peas for 2 minutes. Drain and refresh under cold running water.
  3. Sift the flour, baking powder and dry mustard powder into a large mixing bowl, and add the salt, freshly ground black pepper and mixed herbs or chives.
  4. In a separate bowl lightly beat the egg with an electric whisk and add the boursin cheese, whisking until the cheese has broken up and combined smoothly with the egg. Whisk in the milk, and then, using a wooden spoon, stir in the peas and ham.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix lightly and quickly to combine. Spoon the mixture into the greased muffin tin and sprinkle the top of each muffin with grated cheddar cheese. 
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until the muffins are golden brown and firm to the touch. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool. 
  7. Serve warm with butter, as a light lunch with a cheese omelette, or as a savoury snack.
