Ham and Onion muffins

With my current hectic schedule, cooking at home and updating my blog on a daily basis has been quite impossible. My dear housemate Pinky has just turned ill, she has a lump on her throat and her tonsils are sore. I was about to make her favourtie seafood paella for dinner; but I doubt she's in the mood for anything chunky and difficult to digest. The only meals she's had the past 24hours are bland porridge and bread. I hope these would cheer her up a little.For 6 Large muffins
4 slices thick smoked ham sliced thinly
1 onion sliced thinly

1 tbsp lea and perrins woschestire sauce
2 1/2 cup self raising flour
1 1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup light olive oil
1 large egg
fresh grated pepper
1 tbsp grated parmesan

2 sprigs fresh lemon thyme
1 tsp salt

Cook ham and onions with sauce and pepper in microwave on high for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally until onions are wilted. Sift flour into a mixing bowl and make a well in the center. Whisk egg, milk, oil and salt in a jug and pour into flour. Mix gently until partially combined. Add in ham mixture and the rest of the ingredients. Fold through until smooth. Spoon into muffin tray and bake in 180 degree oven for approximately 30-45 minutes or until tops brown and skewer comes out clean. Serve with cream cheese and dashes of black pepper; or however you wish!
