Cheesy Pizza Muffins

I hosted an inservice at work on Monday and they loved my muffins. If you are looking for something quick, easy and savoury for a morning or afternoon tea, or just for snacks, then try these. My oldest girl loves taking them to school :-)


1 red capsicum
2 1/2 c S.R. flour
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 1/4 c milk
1/3 c olive oil (you can use vegetable oil too)
1/2 c grated tasty cheese
1/4 c parmesan cheese
1/3 c finally chopped seeded black olives
1/3 c drained chopped sun-dried tomatoes
2 T chopped basil
2 t chopped rosemary
1/4 c grated tasty cheese, extra

  1. Grease muffin pans well. Quarter capsicum, remove seeds and membrane. Grill capsicum, skin side up, until skin blisters and blackens. Peel skin away, cut capsicum into strips.
  2. Sift flour unto large bowl, stir in eggs, milk, cheeses, olives, tomatoes, herbs and half the capsicum.
  3. Spoon mixture into prepared pans, top with remaining capsicum strips, sprinkle with extra cheese. Bake in a moderately hot oven for 20-25 minutes.
This recipe will make about 2 dozen cup-cake size muffins or 1 dozen large muffins.

You can also add a little cooked, chopped bacon if you feel the need for meat.
