Sun dried tomato and cheese savoury muffins

Slather on the butter and dig in!

If you’re looking for a tasty alternative to your morning or afternoon snack, this delicious muffin is it! You can enjoy them warm out of the oven with a nice smearing of butter, or keep them stored in an air-tight container and pull them out whenever you need something to satisfy your craving. While the ingredients call for sun dried tomatoes and herbs, you can really ad in whatever you like along the way. Try different herbs, like basil or thyme, or ad marinated capsicum or kalamata olives. If you really want to take things to the next level, sprinkle a little parmesan cheese on top before putting them in the oven for a lovely golden top!
