Savoury muffins with Pecorino Toscano PDO


Ingredients (2 people)

  • 150 g of flour
  • 100 g of milk
  • 20 g of grated aged Pecorino Toscano PDO
  • 40 g of diced fresh Pecorino Toscano PDO
  • 30 g of vegetable oil
  • 5 g of salt
  • 5 g of sugar
  • 1 egg

Begin separating the egg yolk from the white. Put the egg white into a mixer and beat it until it becomes white and frothy; add milk, salt, sugar, aged Pecorino Toscano PDO, sifted flour, and yeast. Blend the mixture until obtaining a thick, smooth dough.

Fill some paper cases in with the mixture for about a half. In each paper case, place a cube of fresh Pecorino Toscano PDO in the centre of the mixture.

You can finish off your savoury muffins with vegetables or cold cuts.

For the vegetarian version, you can use:

  • Courgettes
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Nuts
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflowers
  • Pears

Bake in a hot oven at 200 °C for about 20 minutes.
