Yummy Cheesy Broccoli Muffins!
I’ve never been a very good cook and part of the reason for setting up this blog was to push myself to cook better! After having the little man, I knew I couldn’t live on pizza for the rest of my life…I’ve been trying to make an effort and I’ve been actively looking up new recipes and things to try. Making savoury muffins would not have been on my to-do list pre-b. I found the recipe while browsing the Netmums site and it actually sounded straight forward. Mix ingredients, bake, eat.
So I thought I’d give them a whirl. And I was pleasantly surprised. I also decided to add in some broccoli. I mean, when doesn’t cheese and broccoli go well together?! I followed the Netmums recipe, using a little less cheese and instead chucking in some broccoli. And they were a success. Check out our muffins!
Easy to Make and faff-Free!
They smelt delicious, they looked delicious and they tasted great! We ate some fresh out of the oven and they were super soft and all gooey with cheese. Yum yum. Even the little guy was impressed.
They were actually easy to make too – much less faff than I expected. You basically combine an egg and milk and then mix that in with all the dry ingredients: self-raising flour, cheese, broccoli and a bit of paprika.
You then give it a good mix until it’s all one big gloopy, cheesy mess. It’s supposed to be lumpy too 🙂
We baked them in the oven for around twenty minutes and then left them to cool – well we may have started eating them sooner 😉
Eat Them Warm!
I popped the rest on a plate, covered and put them in the fridge once they’d cooled down. Now…I’m not sure what happened overnight but the gooey, spongy, soft muffins had turned into little cheese rocks! They were certainly not as nice as the night before :/
Perhaps they needed a little heating in the oven or something. It seems the cheese had set in the fridge, making these muffins super-duper hard. B was not impressed when I asked him if he fancied one for breaky.
Cheese Grater Hater
So there, I’ve popped my savoury muffin cherry. What would I do differently next time? I’d eat them up straight away! These would almost be better to bake on the day and eat then and there. One good thing was they took literally less than 15 minutes to prep. The hardest part of the prep was grating 200grams of bloody cheese. I hate grating cheese! I’d buy it pre-grated next time.
