Spinach & Cheese muffins
I usually bake these when we have a day out to a beach or a picnic in the park. (another picnic idea is my Thai/Brit sausage rolls in my earlier post).
When these are baking, your house will just smell wonderful. I can barely resist eating one before we hit the beach!
They are delicious. Cheese and vegetables are all in !! An easy lunch away from home.
There are 3 types of cheese in the recipe but you can swap and change to whatever cheese you prefer as long as they are not all soft cheese. The batter should be thick and not runny.
Frozen spinach works really well. I always have a bag in my freezer. Once defrosted, squeeze out as much excess water as possible. If using fresh spinach, steam rather than boil as it is less soaky.
