Garlic Onion Muffins - #MuffinMonday

I'm ditching the sweet stuff and diving into the land of savoury muffins. And it is wonderful! I ate three of these little muffins the first day that I made them and the only reason that I didn't eat 5 was that I was too lazy to go grab them from the kitchen. They are great warm and great at room temperature. They never stuck around long enough to make it to the fridge to get cold.

These muffins are actually the perfect breakfast muffin for me. I happily ate two with eggs and my plan is to make a large batch and see how well they freeze so that I can eat them throughout the week. They come together quickly so it wouldn't be too much trouble to make them for a weekend breakfast. The hardest part is dicing the onions and that can be done beforehand.

As always, scroll down to see the other muffins this month.

Garlic Onion Muffins
(adapted from:
Yield: 12 muffins

240 grams flour
60 grams (~1/2 cup) finely diced onions
12 grams (~ 4 tablespoons) finely cut escallion tops)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 cup milk
1 egg
4 tablespoons oil
3 teaspoons (~8 cloves) crushed garlic

Preheat oven to 400 F. Grease a muffin pan
Whisk together flour, onions, escallion, baking powder, sugar, salt and cayenne. In a separate bowl, mix together milk, egg, oil, and crushed garlic.
Gently stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix only until just combined. Divide among the 12 muffin wells.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes until the muffins are lightly golden and a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean.

  • I used a garlic press to crush my garlic.
  • 1 teaspoon of cayenne makes them pretty spicy!
  • Brushing the hot muffins with garlic butter would be great!
