Savoury muffin recipes?

(19 Posts)

I have some carrot, courgette and cheddar muffins in the oven, hopefully for the children's packed lunches and wondered if anyone had any other savoury muffin recipes please?

I don't think the one I used is very adaptable as it's quite dry, presumably to allow for the moisture in the carrots/courgettes?

Thanks.

There's a good one in the "my daddy cooks" book. It has brocolli, cherry toms and cheese. Very nice and you can fiddle about with the ingredients and put in whatever you want. I've done carrot, courgette, ham etc, all very successfully. I can post it later if you like?

Or have you tried cheese scones? These cheddar and sweetcorn scones are lovely.

These Multi-Veg Muffins have carrot, courgette, pepper and sweetcorn with cheddar. Yummy but may be similar to what you already make?

These Spinach and Feta Muffins are lovely.

In fact, pretty much every single recipe on this woman's blog is excellent - she cooks for a baby (BLW) and a toddler and her recipes have never failed me.

Thankyou. I may try them all, but the spinach and feta muffins sound absolutely delicious.

Do any of you have any that freeze well?

PoppyAmex Mon 19-Aug-13 09:44:27

I think most muffins freeze really well.

I make a massive batch of spinach/feta and stick them in the freezer (already baked) and take one out for DD first thing in the morning. It's edible around lunchtime.

midori if you try those muffins, remember to add salt if baking for adults!

PoppyAmex, I tried those muffins tonight, although used feta and sundried tomatoes and oil from the sundried tomatoes, plus a bit of parmesan for extra flavour and they are absolutely delicious. I'm really pleased and will try them with a different flavouring when I get a chance.

Thanks for the recipe, a few others I like the look of on the blog too. smile

Omg DrLadybird, those multii-veg muffins are AMAZING!
DS (19mths) loves them too wink

And Poppy, that littlegrazers blog looks fantastic - thanks! Definitely going to try some of their recipes.

Glad you liked them midori - loving the idea of sundried tomatoes, definitely trying that!

Miffy her recipes are really solid and DD has loved everything so far.

I tried these the other day for DD and the adults scoffed them all blush

I'm pleased the multi-veg muffins went down well, with both you AndMiffy and the little one. And I agree,*Poppy*, your blog looks great- will defo have to try some of your recipes out.

That's great, Drlady - just a quick note to let you know it's not my blog, it's an American woman and I don't really know her.

Actually found it by accident but everything she publishes works really well. DD especially loves the Bites Recipes and DH has been known to scoff a few too.

Thanks for the multi veg muffin recipe link. My DCs almost always refuse to eat any savoury stuff I bake but they both went along with these! Remarkable!

For a different sort of muffin, we
grate 8oz of sweet potato, and simmer 2 mins
Drain through a sieve which already has 8oz grated courgette in (ie pour the boiling water over the courgette).
Mix with 6oz breadcrumbs (brown or granary by preference) and 4 ox grated cheese (chedder here), and a teaspoon mixed herbs.

Put into muffin moulds, and cook 15 mins, 180 deg.

Any ideas on savoury flavours that don't include cheese??
Just 'missing it out' of a recipe never tastes good...
