Savoury Muffins are the best way to kick-start a day, especially when they are loaded with Cheese and veggies, providing enough protein and other nutrition that will make you fresh and fit early in the morning! I had some left-over Pizza sauce and as I'm going to be leaving for a vacation in a couple of days, I wanted to clear my pantry of the cheese and veggies that needed attention! So, what better way to use these than throw it all together in muffin moulds?!! - the result, these easy and wonderful Breakfast Muffins. Filled with the goodness of protein-rich cheddar cheese, eggs, anti-oxidant -rich bell peppers, yogurt, and the flavors of Italian spices, these Savoury Muffins are indeed a treat to bake and to devour!
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup orange cheddar cheese cubes (or shredded cheese)
1 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup chopped red or green bell-peppers
1/4 cup pizza sauce
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners and keep ready.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, basil and baking soda until combined. Stir in the cheddar cubes.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the yogurt, eggs and butter until smooth. Stir into flour mixture just until well combined and no dry spots remain; stir in the pizza sauce and the bell-peppers at the very end. The batter will be very thick, but don't worry, that's how it's supposed to look!
Spoon the batter into muffin cups, dividing evenly. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese on top of each one.
Bake about 20 minutes, until golden brown, and a toothpick inserted in the centre of one of middle muffins comes out clean.
Let the muffins cool in pan at least 5 minutes before removing, then allow them to cool completely on a wire rack.
Brew a cup of fresh cappucino (or espresso, if you must), and serve these delicious Savoury Cheese Muffins for a healthy, nutritious and lavish breakfast!
