Savoury Muffins

SavedPicture-2014101512849.jpg   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.   SavedPicture-2014101512933.jpg For 12 Savoury Muffins you'll need: 1 cup chopped left over chicken pieces, preferably breast 1 cup peeled and chopped onions 1 cup chopped tomatoes 1 cup deseeded and chopped mixed red and green peppers 2 large eggs, beaten 1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese 2 1/2 Tbsps self raising flour 1/4 tsp salt (optional) 1 tsp black pepper SavedPicture-2014101512857.jpg   Add all the ingredients in a large bowl, mix everything together with a spoon until all the ingredients are combine.       SavedPicture-2014101512912.jpg   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) SavedPicture-2014101512920.jpg   Bake for 15 minutes in a preheated oven at 180C.     SavedPicture-2014101512927.jpg   SavedPicture-2014101512933.jpg   Enjoy :)
