Goat Cheese, Basil, and Sun-Dried Tomato Muffins pulled apart

These muffins are the perfect match for steaming hot soup and a crisp green salad. Rustic, almost biscuit-like, you’ll find them delicious for breakfast too. Think scrambled eggs or maybe an omelet.

Let’s define muffins as small domed cakes that rise above some sort of container. A basic muffin is a mix of flour, leavening, milk, salt, and fat, and often something to make them sweet. Then there are the add-ins—you know, blueberries, nuts, cheese etc.–sweet or savory, so many possiilities. You’ll love these savory ones!

Goat Cheese, Basil, and Sun-dried Tomato Muffins recipe details:

  • Bakers trick: Preheat the oven 25 degrees hotter than the recipe requires. Just when you place the filled muffin tins in the oven to bake, lower to the regular temperature, in this case from 375°F. to 350°F.
  • A cookie scoop like this (affiliate link) comes in mighty handy for portioning muffin and cookie batters.
  • Option: Substitute chopped parsley leaves in place of fresh basil.

    Do you think these would work with gluten free flour? They sound so wonderful. Reply · 21 May, 2020

    • Yes, I’m sure these muffins would come out close to the same substituting a GF flour blend. Which blend is your favorite? Some GF folks have definite opinions. Reply · 21 May, 2020
