This time I made used my savoury muffins recipe to make a batch of cheesy ham, corn and chives muffins, but you can use absolutely any other add-ins and flavourings you like. Here’s a few more of my fave combinations:

  • sun-dried tomatoes, chopped baby spinach and feta;
  • zucchini and ham (just make sure you squeeze ALL of the liquid out of the zucchini so the muffins stay deliciously fluffy);
  • cheese and bacon

The best thing about these savoury muffins is that they’re freezer friendly. Muffins are always best on the day that they’re made, but if you pop them in the freezer, then they’ll stay deliciously fresh. I like to freeze mine in individual sealable bags so that I can easily grab 1 out and pop it in Will’s lunchbox in the morning.

My savoury muffins recipe makes muffins that are delish served either warm or cold… but warm is 100% by far my favourite way to eat them! You can re-heat them for a few seconds in the microwave or a couple of minutes in a low oven… and then slather on ALL the butter.

    Thank you! I generally hate it when people change the recipe then comment, but seeing as you’ve given permission…
    I subbed in red capsicum for the corn, bacon for the ham and parsley for the chives (so I didn’t have to brave the supermarket with my kids) and they are great!!!
