PANCETTA AND PECORINO CHEESE MUFFINS
Savoury muffins: I think they are absolutely gorgeous and mouth-watering. Just the right idea for parties!
I have used pecorino cheese, but don't get frustrated if you can't find it...cheddar would equally do a great job!
for 14 medium muffin cases
250 g flour
50 g of grated parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of salt
100 g of non smoked diced pancetta ( preferably diced non smoked bacon)
100 g of diced pecorino cheese (not the mature type)
200 ml of milk (room temperature)
60 g of melted butter
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Put the muffin cases on a large baking tin.
Put the dry ingredients into a large bowl and the wet ingredients into a jug.
Mix them all together until you get a lumpy but smooth batter.
Using a spoon put the batter into the muffin cases and pop in the oven.
Cook for 15 to 20 minutes.
Nothing easier and tastier!
