Muffin Monday: Ricotta Dill Muffins

Written & photographed by

Some of my favourite recipes from Muffin Monday have been savoury. Remember the Crusty Cheese & Onion Muffins? How about those Spinach Feta Muffins? Yum. So when I saw that An from Baker Street had chosen a savoury recipe for this week’s muffin, I was excited. It has been a while since we tackled the savoury side of muffins.

The recipe for this week’s muffin was scribbled on a piece of paper that An happened to come across, the original source unknown. Originally dried basil was called for in the recipe, but I decided to use fresh dill. I also added an extra egg, and threw in some sautéed onions, garlic and zucchini. What I love about this recipe is the unlimited flavour possibilities. Feel free to switch up the herbs, try a variety of ‘goodies’ (cheddar cheese, bacon, shredded hash browns, feta, spinach, roasted garlic etc.)

These muffins were a nice change from the usual sweet treats we’ve been making. The texture was lovely and eggy, the ricotta resulted in a nice moist texture, and the subtle flavour of the dill was perfectly balanced with the caramelized taste of the veggies. I think next time I would throw in some cheese (feta would be nice) to give the muffins some added saltiness.

    Thanks for your comment Deb! I’m so sorry – the recipe is kind of confusing to find (especially with all of the substitutions I ended up making for my version).
