For a savoury snack or breakfast that's delicious, nutritious, and quick and easy to make, these spinach muffins with goat's cheese really hit the spot. They pair perfectly with soup or salad. For an extra flavour kick, add 1-2 finely chopped chillies (green or red) together with crumbled cheese. Instead of goat's cheese, you can use other cheese made with sheep's milk, for example, real Feta or even Roquefort.

  • 40 g Bacon fat (or butter)
  • 185 ml Full fat milk
  • 100 g Baby spinach leaves
  • 250 g White spelt lour
  • 1 tbsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp Black salt
  • 50 g Finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 2 Small eggs
  • 2 tsp Dijon wholegrain mustard
  • 150 g Soft goat's cheese (plain or herb flavoured)
  • 6 Cherry tomatoes
  1. Preheat oven to 190C/375F. Lightly grease 6 holes of a jumbo muffin pan or 10 holes of a regular one.
  2. Heat bacon fat or butter and milk in a pan over medium heat. Add the spinach and stir for 1 minute until wilted. Remove from heat, cool slightly, then blend until almost smooth.
  3. Sift spelt flour, baking powder, baking soda and black salt into a large bowl. Add grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, eggs, wholegrain mustard and spinach mixture.
  4. Crumble in goat's cheese, then mix gently until just combined. Divide the mixture among 6 muffin holes. Prick tomatoes several times, then place one in the centre of each muffin.
  5. Bake for 22 minutes for jumbo pan, and 16 minutes for regular, or until muffins are risen and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Turn out onto a rack to cool slightly. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Beautiful muffins. Would love to taste one if I can get my hand on it. Lol!

Yvonne@fiction-books 12/3/21 08:30

These look delicious and would definitely be great with a bowl of soup as a main meal.

I absolutely love cheese of any kind, with the one exception of goat's cheese, so I would definitely need to find a substitution for that, although I suppose they would work okay with any cheese really, as it is the spinach and chillies which add the real Oomph! to this recipe!

Thanks for sharing and have a good weekend :)

Ooh yes, how very lovely. As you know I'm a big fan of green and I infinitely prefer savoury muffins to sweet ones. The jolly tomatoes on the top put a big smile on my face too.

Love savory muffins! And what's better than taking a bite from the muffin and have the that little cherry tomato pop with juice in that same bite? So full of surprises :)

Me too, I love muffins with a touch of savoury-ness. The muffins look so pretty with the bright green hue and a cherry tomato!
