The Best Savoury Muffins

Recipes / Snacks and Appetizers

These are my favourite savoury muffins! The best thing is that they are so easy to make but they taste and look like they could come from a café. This gourmet snack has some of my favourite ingredients in the recipe (sun-dried tomatoes, pesto and cheese) so it is no wonder that I love these mouthfuls of deliciousness.  Great for a meal on the run or morning tea.

Makes 20-24 large muffins or around 30 medium sized muffins


  • 6 cups of flour
  • 9 tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp curry powder
  • 6 cups of grated cheese
  • 2 cups chopped feta
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 cups milk
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 3 cups of any of the following: roast vegetables, sundried tomatoes, red capsicum, parsley, pesto (today I used sun-dried tomatoes, pesto and parsley)
  • black pepper
  • topping: relish of choice (i like to use anathoth tomato relish), sliced tomato, sesame seeds


  • Preheat oven to 200°C and grease muffin trays
  • Sift flour, baking powder, curry powder and pepper in a large bowl
  • Toss through grated cheese and feta
  • In another bowl, lightly beat eggs and milk together.


  • Add to dry ingredients along with 3 cups of vegetables


  • Divide between muffin tins and top each one with a spoonful of relish, some sliced tomato and a sprinkle of sesame seeds.


  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

    • You could definitely use zucchini. I would recommend using 1 cup of grated zucchini, making sure you squeeze out a lot of the excess moisture. Zucchini, corn kernels and basil could be a good combination 🙂

    Looks so good! Do you roast the vegetables you add yourself?

    • Hi Serena. Thanks for your comment 🙂
      This recipe is great cause you can add in basically anything 🙂 I would use vegetables if I had any leftovers from a roast, I wouldn’t bother roasting vegetables especially for this recipe since I am lazy haha. My fave tomato relish is a New Zealand brand called Anathoth, however I’m not sure if it is available out of NZ sorry.

    Presentation is absolutely great, reminded me of food from a cafe!!
    It tasted just as good, especially the tomatoes and sesame seeds. I love savoury muffins and not a great fan of sweet muffins. Therefore, these muffins are definitely up my alley way!!
