“Liked” Leek Muffins

Here is a way to combine something sweet with something savory…
When the kids got home at lunch time and I told them that we were having muffins for lunch they were over the moon, only to realize that mummy had hidden veggies in them.

The Ingredients

1 Leek
150g bacon cubes
a bunch of chives
30g cheese (I used Gruyère)

The Dough

250g flour
1 sachet baking powder
20g butter
1 whisked egg
300g natural yoghurt
salt and pepper

Preheat the oven at 200°C. Chop up the leeks and fry with the bacon, leave to cool and make the dough. Mix all the dough ingredients together, chop up the chives and grate the cheese, add both to the dough with the meanwhile cooled leeks and bacon. Stir well and spoon into muffin tray. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

While the muffins are baking you’ll have time to make the dip (and clear up).
The Dip

150g chickpeas
150g natural yoghurt
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp paprika

Puree the chickpeas, add the yoghurt, the lemon juice and the paprika. Mix it all together and leave in the fridge until ready to serve.

The kids did complain a bit about the leeks and the chives but the bacon and the dip made up for it. I actually think they liked them.

    These look really good, I think I might have to make a batch. Could I just ask how many they make?
