    Default Savoury muffin recipe needed!

    Hi everyone,

    Just wondering if any of you know a good savoury muffin recipe. I had a look online but they all seem to have lots of butter in them.

    Does anyone have a healthier alternative?

    I am very busy at home and I tend to just snack through the day because I don't have time to sit down and make a meal.

    I am hoping that some healthy vegetable muffins would be better than bikkies!

    I cant link it on my phone but the forums have a lunch box and recipe section that has a large collection of healthy recipes/alternatives. I suggest checking there. =)

    Back in my day, ABC played Alice Cooper on the kids cartoons and our cartoons could talk. Being a kid sucks now.

    This is my favourite recipe for them:

    Savoury Vegetable Muffins

    Ingredients
    1/2 cup grated cheese
    2 cups SR Flour
    1/2 cup creamed corn
    1 egg
    1/4 cup olive oil
    3/4 cup milk
    1 grated carrot
    1/2 grated zuchinni
    1/2 cup very finely diced pumpkin
    1/2 cup finely cut broccoli
    1 clove garlic
    Salt and pepper to taste
    * you can use any type of veges you want

    Method
    - preheat oven to 170 degrees fan forced
    - fry garlic, add pumpkin and broccoli and cook until almost soft.
    - sift flour into a bowl, add all the veges and cheese
    - in a seperate bowl whisk together oil, corn, milk and egg and then add to flour. Season with salt and pepper
    - mix all ingredients until just combined
    - place mixture in greased muffin tray
    - cook 25 - 30 mins till light golden.

    ETA - this isn't my own recipe, another hubber posted it months ago and I saved it :-)

    I don't know if I'm allowed to post a link to the site I found this recipe on, but they've got heaps of great recipes. PM me if you want the website.

    Ingredients:
    • 2 zucchini’s, grated (skin on)
    • 2 large potatoes, peeled and grated
    • 2 brown onions, grated
    • 1.5 cups ham or bacon pieces (optional)
    • 3 carrots, grated
    • 1 cup cheddar cheese (grated)
    • 3 eggs
    • 3.5 cups milk
    • 3 cups self raising flour
    • 2 cups wholemeal self raising flour
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    Method

    Muffin cases are perfect for this recipe as it does have a tendency to ‘stick’ (and makes them more portable).
    Preheat your oven to 200 degrees. Sift the flours and salt into a bowl and make a well in the centre. In a separate bowl combine the egg and milk and combine well.
    Make a well in the centre of the flour and pour the liquid in slowly, using a whisk to bring the batter mixture together without over working the mixture.
    Add the grated vegetables and mix with a wooden spoon until just combined. Mixture should be sticky.
    Spoon into the muffin cases so they are 3/4 full and top with a pinch of cheese on each muffin. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes or until golden and cooked through.

    PS - I made a half batch of this recipe and still ended up with a kilo of muffins!

    Oh my god.... Just made them and they are delicious.

    I tweaked it a little

    I did zucchini, carrot, corn kernels, bacon (naughty), spring onion, basil, garlic, salt and pepper. Yummy!
