In my house muffins are usually sweet but there are also some fabulous savoury muffin recipes around and I think these macadamia mediterranean muffins could well be one of them.
Macadamia Mediterranean muffins
2 cups self raising flour, sifted
1 cup macadamias, roasted and roughly chopped
100ml macadamia oil
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup milk
100g parmesan cheese, grated
100g prosciutto, finely chopped
1/3 cup roasted capsicum, finely chopped
3 tablespoons, finely chopped rosemary leaves
rosemary sprigs for garnish
12 thin slices roasted capsicum, extra for garnish
Preheat oven to 200°C, fan-forced. Lightly grease a 12-muffin, 1/3 cup capacity muffin pan or line with muffin cases.
Place the flour and macadamias into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre. Pour oil, egg and milk into a jug and stir until combined. Pour into the flour well and stir until almost combined. Add the cheese, prosciutto, roasted capsicum and rosemary and fold through.
Spoon into the muffin holes, garnish with rosemary sprigs and a slice of capsicum. Bake for 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years, I have broadened my horizons considerably. In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews. Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS!
