Baking Pan“Delicious warm out of the oven, as a convenient snack or packed in your lunch bag.”



1 ½ cups flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 Tbsp white sugar
¼ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp dill
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup minced onion
½ tsp butter
1/3 cup finely chopped ham
1/3 cup finely chopped spinach
1 cup milk

  2. Stir together flour, baking powder, white sugar, garlic and dill.
  3. Add the shredded cheese and stir.
  4. Place the onion in a microwave safe dish. Add the butter and microwave for 45 seconds or until the butter melts and the onion is softened.
  5. In a separate bowl beat the egg. Add the milk and oil to the beaten egg.
  6. Add the milk mixture to the dry ingredients and stir just until moistened.
  7. Fold in the onions, ham and spinach.
