    Our recipe contains Parma ham, mushrooms, and cheddar to really level up the flavour.

As well as being great for a nutritious afternoon snack, these stuffed wheat-free muffins make for great, easy canapés.


    • 6 slices Parma ham or prosciutto
    • 10g butter
    • 100g button mushrooms, finely sliced
    • 2 medium eggs, beaten
    • 3tbsp milk
    • 1/2tsp English mustard
    • 50g Cheddar, grated


    • Preheat the oven to 190C/Gas 5. Halve the lengths of Parma ham and use each half to roughly line an oiled 12-hole silicon mini muffin tray.

    • Melt the butter in a frying pan, add the mushrooms and fry for 10 mins until golden.

    • Mix the eggs, milk, mustard and cheese into the mushrooms and season. Pour into the lined muffins and bake for 10-15 mins until risen and set.

    Top tips for making wheat-free muffins

    If you find that these muffins are a little dense, use a sprinkle of baking powder in the mixture. This will make the muffins light and fluffy as baking powder gives all types of dough extra rise.
