Ham and Swiss Puffs are the perfect dinner for busy weeknights!
Somehow, my husband can take the exact same thing to work every single day and not think twice about it. A sandwich, some chips, and some form of chocolate and he is good to go.
Undoubtedly, he is a creature of habit. On one hand, it is kind of wonderful considering that he has Celiac so his options are limited. I am glad he doesn’t complain or get tired of things easily.
I, on the other hand, am super high maintenance. I like packing different things for lunch every day.
Sometimes hot, sometimes cold, but always something different. If I had to eat the same thing two days in a row I would go crazy.
For that reason, I love to make any sort of Puff recipe. The versatility, ease and simplicity of bringing them to-go makes them a lunch favorite for me.
One of my favorite tricks is to make the puffs and scoop them into the muffin tins, then add extras to them. A little chopped bell pepper, some feta, or a bit of chopped basil or spinach.
That way, even if I take these for lunch a few days in a row, they taste different. Pepperoni one day, supreme the next, spinach and feta, etc. You get the picture.
But even with all that variety, I still like to change up the flavors completely. That is how these Ham and Swiss Puffs came to be!
Personally, a good warm and toasty ham and swiss is probably my favorite sandwich. I loved the idea of turning it into a nice and easy portable puff.

Can you freeze Ham and Swiss Puffs?
Absolutely! I love to have a tray of Puffs in the freezer for either a quick breakfast or snack.
Simply pop a few into the microwave for 20 second increments until they are to your preferred temperature and you are good to go!
Do I have an obsession with making Puff recipes? We can let the evidence speak for itself here, I think.
How to make Ham and Swiss Puffs
First things first, go ahead and set your oven to 375 degrees. Spray a muffin tin with nonstick spray and set to the side.
Secondly, grab a medium mixing bowl and combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Add your swiss, chopped ham, egg and buttermilk and stir everything together until well combined.
Next, scoop into the muffin tin. You can use an ice cream scoop or a spoon, just be careful to not overfill the tins. Bake for 15 minutes.
If you want to make the Smokey Honey Mustard, combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl until blended.
That’s it! Give these a try the next time you need to add a little variety, you won’t regret it!
