Makes 12.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
8 ounces boneless ham steak, diced
1 1/2 cups grated Cheddar cheese 

Cooking Directions
Heat oven to 450 degrees F.

Lightly grease 12 large muffin tins, or line them with paper liners.

In a large bowl stir together the flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.

Whisk together the egg, buttermilk and oil in a small bowl.
Stir in the ham and cheese.

Using a rubber spatula, stir the egg mixture into the dry ingredients just until combined. Do not overmix. Use a ladle to fill each of the prepared muffin tins

approximately two-thirds full.

Place in the oven and lower the temperature to 400 degrees.

Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

Remove from muffin tin and let cool.
