Muffin tins are usually reserved for sweet treats, but if you don’t have much of a sweet tooth or are looking for a twist on traditional muffins, you can still enjoy them—just make savory ones!
These savory cheese muffins are fluffy on the inside and crumbly on the outside, filled with creamy mozzarella, salty Parmesan cheese, fresh scallions and earthy dried herbs. With a little prep and simple ingredients, you can whip these up in no time.
With two toddlers at home keeping me busy, I’m always looking for quick, easy-to-make meals and snacks that I can prep in advance. Bake a batch or two of these on the weekend and freeze individually for a grab and go snack or a healthy lunchbox option for the kids, or serve at a dinner party as an alternative to bread or rolls, which tend to be heavy and not-so healthy.
Once you’ve mastered the basics of this recipe, you can modify the ingredients to suit your personal taste. Personalize the recipe by adding a variety of ingredients, such as chopped prosciutto, feta or goat cheese, black or green olives, fresh herbs such as parsley and basil, olive tapenade, diced red or green peppers, capers, the list goes on.
