Feta & Spinach Savoury Muffins

A couple of good muffin recipes can be pretty helpful to have in your tool kit. They are so quick and easy to prepare for when those unexpected guests turn up and the pantry is bare! They are also great for kids lunch boxes – and as my teenage son would attest to, super easy to grab and dash out the door with when you are late getting out of bed for school & will miss the bus if you don’t run!

I thought you might enjoy these savoury muffins. They are quite a meal if you use a ‘texas’ pan. Feel free to downsize these into a standard pan and of course you will get more muffins!

4 eggs

1/2 cup canola oil

2/3 cup grated tasty cheese

75g feta, chopped into pieces

4 cups of self-raising flour ( or 4 cups flour + 4 teaspoons baking powder)

1 red onion, finely chopped

3 tomatoes, fresh & chopped

1/2 teaspoon chicken stock powder

1 cup spinach, finely chopped

1/2 teaspoon each of salt & pepper

Either butter large texas muffin pans, or line them with paper. ( I use paper cases – saves on washing up!)

Whisk together the eggs & oil until combined. Sift the flour into the bowl and mix. Add the rest of the ingredients and fold gently into the wet ingredients.The mix is quite solid, don’t worry, thats normal.

Spoon mixture into the muffin trays & bake for 20-25 minutes. 

Nothing like home made muffins straight from the oven.

Now there is just the two of us at home, I make a batch and freeze half for another day. Great to have if you get that unexpected visitor!

Hi, my name is Sharon, and I live in Albany on the North Shore of Auckland, New Zealand. I started my cooking blog as a hobby during my 'gap year' - 'lessonstodate' to share my family recipes and some personal accounts that come with being a mum, and grandmother - and corporate worker. My love of taking photos had taken a back-seat but recently after spending time on my own while my husband travelled, I found myself picking up my camera again. It really is good company! Looking out at the world and watching it unfold; you don't have to participate in it, just watch and wonder. Sharon
