Salty Muffins Easy Recipe



        Nowadays, it seems that muffins aren`t just muffins.    There are so many available combinations you can make, and that is amazing. You have to admit, muffins are delicious. I have a really easy recipe for salty muffins. What I love so much about this, is that it`s so easy to measure all the ingredients. All you need is a cup of yogurt :)






  For starters, the basic ingredients are:
  • 1 cup simple yogurt (150gr)
  • 1 cup sunflower oil
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 cups flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • a pinch of salt


       The great thing about the recipe is that you can use whatever ingredients you want, besides the basic one. And of course, all ingredients are measured with the empty cup of yogurt. I used the following side ingredients:
  • 1 cup cheese
  • 1 cup red pepper
  • 1 cup ham
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup olives
  • 1/2 cup corn grains
     You just cut these up into little cubes.  
     What you have to do: Beat up the eggs (just like you do for an omelet), with a pinch of salt. Add the yogurt and mingle. Then slowly add the rest of the basic ingredients: the milk, oil, flour and baking powder. Mingle it all well. After this, you just add the side ingredients, and it`s done. Just bake the muffins for about 30 minutes, at medium temperature.



   I recommend using silicone forms for the muffins. Because of the cheese, they can get sticky if you use paper forms. 




     As for the side ingredients, you can basically use anything you want, anything your family loves more. You can use bacon instead of ham, or salami. You can even cut up the leftover chicken you have from the last nights' dinner. Or, you can make the muffins full of veggies. But, if you use frozen veggies, I recommend cooking them a little bit before putting them in the muffins. Put a little butter or oil in a frying pan, and let them cook for a while. Don`t cook them very much, because their cooking process will be made in the oven, in the muffin. You just have to make the veggies be a little soft.



    Maybe you want to put everything in the muffins. Don`t do that. Or at least I don`t recommend that. You can use up to 5 cups of side ingredients. If you put more than that, your muffins will be too full of them, and there won`t be any room for the dough itself. I know this because I`ve tried it. I put so many side ingredients in the muffins, that it was too full of them. You still need some dough there :)






    There are so many combinations that you can try with this recipe. And that`s why I love this muffin recipe so much. What do you think? Will you give it a try?
