If a Muffin and a Frittata Had a Baby, This Recipe Would Be It

When it comes to light savoury meals, eggs are king, but they can be a bit too time-consuming to make on busy mornings. One solution: dig into a frittata, like this bacon and cheddar option or a cheesy mushroom-loaded version. (Both recipes can be made ahead of time and eaten throughout the week.) Or try these egg- and cottage-cheese-based savoury muffins.

Studded with chopped-up sun-dried tomatoes, basil, and parmesan cheese, they're savoury, satisfying, and the perfect on-the-go food.

I prefer them warm (they reheat well in a toaster oven), but they're also plenty tasty at room temperature. And, better yet, they take to freezing beautifully. Tuck whatever muffins you won't finish in a few days' time into an airtight container and freeze. Weeks (or even months) later, breakfast, brunch or lunch even, is as simple as defrosting them overnight in the fridge.

Cheese and Sun-Dried Tomato Muffins

From The Best of Rose Elliot: The Ultimate Vegetarian Collection by Rose Elliot, Hamlyn 2014

Notes

To make the muffins gluten-free, use chickpea flour. Leftover muffins can be reheated in the toaster oven, or eaten at room temperature. Almond meal or flour can be substituted for the ground muffins — measure 110 grams of almond meal.

If a Muffin and a Frittata Had a Baby, This Recipe Would Be It

Ingredients

  1. 225 grams cottage cheese
  2. 65 grams grated parmesan cheese, divided
  3. 35 grams all-purpose flour or chickpea flour
  4. 35 grams almonds, very finely ground
  5. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  6. 15 grams sun-dried tomatoes (in oil), finely chopped
  7. 15 grams basil, finely chopped
  8. 60 mL water
  9. 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  10. 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to gas mark 4 / 400°F. Line a muffin tin with 10 muffin cup liners (you may only use 9).
  2. Add the cottage cheese, 45 grams of the parmesan cheese, the flour, ground almonds, baking powder, sun-dried tomatoes, basil, water, eggs, and salt to a large mixing bowl; mix until combined.
  3. Fill the muffin cups 3/4 full, sprinkle the muffins with the remaining Parmesan, and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until golden brown and puffed up. Serve hot or at room temperature.
