Cheesy Sun-dried Tomato & Basil Courgette Muffins

Updated: May 9

I don't really make a lot of savoury bakes but I had lots of courgettes and my husband who loves cheese and tomatoes was working from home so I thought I would make him some savoury muffins! I added a bit of fresh basil I had growing on my windowsill for a mediterranean touch!


Well they were another success as he told me they tasted good and he like the juicy bit of tomato on the top.



They are simple to make and a tasty mid morning snack or for a light lunch. The cheese and sun-dried tomato pair really well and the courgette makes them really moist.



It's a great way to use up an odd courgette you may have lying around in the fridge.


Start by pre-heating the oven to 200 degrees centigrade (180 fan) then place 8 muffin liners in a muffin tray.



Grate the courgette and place in a large mixing bowl.



Then add the grated cheese, basil, flour, sun-dried tomato paste, salt, pepper, oil, milk and eggs.



Mix until fully combined and no flour is visible and divide equally between the 8 muffin liners.




Cut the tomato's into 8 slices and place on the top of the muffins.



Bake for 25 minutes.
