I’m very excited to host this week. Last year, I chose savory muffins as well. They were a great hit and surprised everybody who baked them along with me (in a good way 🙂 ). I served mine with a nice bowl of hot soup. Yum!

IM not a goat cheese OR olive fan… what other savory combos can we use?

I think Feta cheese would work too. Even cheddar or cubed mozzarella would work. Or Pepper Jack, for a little spice. The olives can be left out. I can’t think of a good substitute. Maybe capers or pickled vegetables (carrots, cauliflower, etc). You can find pickled veggies at Ethnic markets or the ethnic aisle in the grocery store these days. I hope that helps.

I adore savory muffins and can’t wait to make these! The goat cheese olive combo sounds delish 🙂

Just looked at my notes from last year. At the time, my savory muffins baked in 20 min, instead of the suggested 30-35 min, so keep a close eye on them, otherwise they’ll be dry.

Ditto Karen. I’m struggling a bit to come up with a savory combo this week.


I love savory muffins. Thanks Hanaa.

Sorry, I just realized, I spelled your name wrong on my blog. I will try to get to it.
