Hop To It Jarlsberg® Breakfast Egg Muffins
By George Duran
¾ cup milk
¼ cup plain flour
1 ¼ cup cornmeal
1 tbsp. sugar

1 tsp salt
Pinch of white pepper
4 tbsp. softened butter
100 g Jarlsberg® cheese

Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. Whisk together the milk and the eggs.
In a separate bowl, mix the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and butter. Add the liquid and stir. Spoon the mixture into muffin cases. If possible, use stiff paper cups, so the muffins stand up better.
Cut the cheese into cubes and press them down into the mixture. Bake into the center of the oven for about 15 minutes. This cornbread can also be baked in a large round baking pan, about 20 cm in diameter.
Combine the ingredients for the nut pesto in a blender or using a hand blender. Pulse or blend until coarsely chopped. Serve the corn muffins with extra Jarlsberg® cheese, nut pesto and thin slices of cured ham, if desired.
