For the pies

1. Cut and blanch broccoli in salted, boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain and immediately submerge the broccoli in ice water to stop the cooking process. Set this aside.

2. In a big mixing bowl, mix together Bisquick mix, milk, egg and oil.

3. The mixture will be thick. Add the ham and drained broccoli. Stir to combine.

4. Add Cheddar and mix to distribute evenly.

5. Divide the batter among the well-greased holes of a muffin pan. You should have enough batter to make 12 pies.

6. Bake at 200°C for 18-22 minutes, or until the tops of the pies are golden brown.

7. Let the pies cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring onto a wire rack to cool completely.
