These savory muffins are so delicious and such a fun twist on a classic! You know I LOVE an excuse to make a muffin, but this is the first time I've developed a savory one. These savory olive oil muffins are filled with some of my favorite things: extra virgin olive oil, lemon zest and juice, briny sheep's milk feta, and lots of fresh dill. These just scream springtime to me. Pair them with a simple salad and you've got an elegant, incredibly easy springtime starter. Pair them with some eggs and champagne and voila: brunch! Or just grab one as a savory snack anytime of day. They are so versatile!
I am thrilled to be teaming up with Filippo Berio again to bring you this delicious springtime treat. Their Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a staple in my kitchen and it makes these savory muffins moist, flavorful, and extra special.
Add these savory muffins to your springtime baking list
As the seasons change, my urges to bake, cook, and create memories in the kitchen remain the same. I still want to make the recipes my family loves, but the ingredients I reach for tend to change ever so slightly. I look to lighter, brighter flavors while also sticking to tried and true favorites. These muffins are a perfect example of that. I make muffins often, but I wanted to give a fresh, savory, springtime twist to one of my family's favorite treats.
I always have Filippo Berio Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil in my pantry. It lends a fresh and intensely fruity flavor to many of my recipes, both sweet and savory. The trio of lemon, dill, and feta are such springtime flavors to me and they pair beautifully with the extra virgin olive oil to create a moist, flavorful muffin.
Perfect for Easter!
I feel I must mention that these savory muffins would be perfect for an Easter menu, too. Whether an Easter brunch or a more formal Easter dinner, they will pair perfectly with whatever you're serving. And muffins are perfectly portable; Even if you can't celebrate with loved ones this year, you can leave a package of these savory muffins safely on their front porch. Nothing says "I love you" like some freshly baked muffins.
Olive Oil in baked goods?
Oh yes - and not just in savory recipes, either! I have used olive oil in baked goods - both sweet and savory - for years. Here are a few recipes where olive oil is the star of the show.
I do hope you'll give these savory muffins a try. And the next time you're out shopping or ordering your groceries, check out some of Filippo Berio's products. From olive oils to pestos to vinegars to glazes, they have such an array of quality products that I love having on hand. xo - AnitaPrint
