Savory Muffins


One of my favorite recipes that is so typically New Zealand, savory muffins, found in almost every coffee shop and supermarket. The fun things about this muffin is, it’s so easy to bake, mess-free and you can experiment with so many different ingredients — caramelized onions, italian herbs & sun-dried tomato, or spinach and feta cheese perhaps?

Savoury Cheese & Bacon Muffins

* 2 cups all purpose flour – sifted
* 4 tsp baking powder
* 1/4 tsp salt
* 1 1/2 cups milk
* 1 large egg – beaten
* 50 gr melted butter (may be replaced by low fat cooking oil)
* 3/4 cup strong vintage cheese, cut into tiny cubes
* 2 tbs bacon, make tiny shreds
* 2 tbs chopped red & green bell peppers (optional)
* pinch of cayenne pepper powder

Cooking directions:

1.) Sift flour, baking powder, salt and cayenne pepper into a bowl. Stir well to combine

2.) In a different bowl mix in egg, butter and milk. Stir into the flour mixture

3.) I prefer to bake the bacons until they’re crispy, but this can be replaced by bacon bits or something else. Fold in chopped bell peppers, bacon and cheese cubes.
I prefer the cubed cheese rather than grated cheese – but it’s up to you really

4.) Prepare muffin tins with papercups. Fill about 2/3 with dough mixture. Bake at 200 degrees for 15 – 20 mnts

Original recipe by Edmond’s Cook Book – I made some variations to my personal taste.
