I bought a giant bag of broccoli from Costco on the weekend. I don't know why exactly since Mike and Ally both hate broccoli. I realized this after I rearranged the fridge to fit the giant bag, so I started my quest for finding a broccoli muffin recipe that we would enjoy. I made it tonight with the original recipe found here. I found the recipe to be bland and I didn't like the use of parmesan and I cut down the amount of onion (one offensive vegetable is enough).
- 3 cups chopped and steamed broccoli,
- 1/2 medium onion, chopped
- 1/2 cup diced fully cooked ham
- 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
- 6 eggs
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
Directions:Combine the broccoli, onion, ham and cheese; set aside. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs until frothy. Add oil; mix well. Combine dry ingredients; add to the egg mixture just until moistened. Fold in broccoli mixture.
Fill greased muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 375° for 18-22 minutes or until muffins test done. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pan to a wire rack. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
