Today’s muffin mania is a little different from all the other ones I’ve done…it’s a savory muffin! These are perfect for picnics, lunch boxes, dish-to-pass meals, appetizers, snacks…you get the idea. And if you usually buy those bagel bite, pizza pocket, things, you can make these instead and save some moola and eat healthier! They’re also perfect for using up leftovers after making pizza. It seems like every time I make pizza we have some sauce, cheese or something leftover.
I got the idea for these from this recipe, but I tweaked it a little based on what I had and made it a little healthier.
- 1/2 cup white flour
- 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 3/4 tsp. baking powder
- red pepper flakes
- pinch of salt
- 1 cup chopped up pepperoni
- black olives (I only had a little left, less than 1/4 cup)
- 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
- 3/4 cup grated mozzarella cheese
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 egg
- Pizza sauce for dipping (Don’t have any sauce? They taste good without it too!)
Preheat your oven to 375.
Mix the flours, baking powder and seasonings.
Mix the milk and egg then mix them in with the dry ingredients along with the cheeses, pepperoni and olives.
Let sit for 10 minutes.
Put into greased muffin tins and bake 20-25 minutes or until done.
Serve with pizza sauce and/or ranch for dipping.
I got one dozen small muffins and 3 regular sized ones out of it. If I make it again for my family as a meal, I think I’ll double the recipe.
