Savoury Muffins

Ever had unexpected guests and nothing to serve them? I’m sure many of you experienced this before. Well, I was in this predicament on Sunday morning after having unexpected guests sleep over on Saturday night. Usually, I have a supply of koesisters in the freezer, which would have been perfect  for a traditional Sunday breakfast in a Cape Malay home. Sadly, on this occasion I had none, not even a doughnut!

 

What to do? I haven’t gone shopping yet, so my grocery cupboards only had everyday necessities. After scratching my brain for ideas, I decided to make a quick bread, savoury scones using left over chicken of the previous day as well as oats and dates muffins. In the end everyone had an enjoyable breakfast / brunch and I was saved from embarrassment. Here follows my recipe for savoury muffins. I’ll post the oats & dates and the bread recipe on another occasion.

2 large eggs, beaten

1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese

1/4 tsp salt (optional)

1 tsp black pepper

Spoon into 12 – 14 silicone cupcake holders. You can also use a greased 12 cup muffin tray. (depending on the size of your cupcake holder you may even get 14 like I did)
