Scallion Goat Cheese Muffins
  • Servings: 12
  • Preparation Time: 45
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 4 ounces soft mild goat cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 stick (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 bunch scallions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. and butter twelve 1/3-cup muffin cups.
  2. In a small bowl stir together 2 tablespoons milk and goat cheese until combined. Into a bowl sift together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Melt butter and in another small bowl whisk together with remaining milk and egg. Finely chop enough scallions to measure 1 cup. Stir butter mixture and scallions into flour mixture until just combined. Divide half of batter evenly among muffin cups and top each with about 2 teaspoons goat cheese filling. Divide remaining batter over filling. Bake muffins in middle of oven until golden and a tester comes out clean, about 20 minutes.
  3. Makes 12 muffins.
This is my most favorite recipe I've found on epicurious to date. I love both goat cheese and scallions, and this muffin is the perfect marriage of the two. It's great for brunch or as a side during a cookout.
