Mushroom muffins

"A slightly modified recipe from 'More muffin magic', a lovely little book that a friend of mine brought me a few years ago from Australia; I made them this morning for my mom, who's in bed for a bad flu, and though she hasn't eaten much these days, she had three of these in a row..."

Ready In:




  • Preheat oven 200°C, line muffin pans with paper cases or grease them.
  • Mix eggs, oil, milk, parmesan, parsley and thyme.
  • Add mushrooms and ham and mix thoroughly.
  • Add flour and baking powder and mix just until combined, do not overmix.
  • Place in prepared pans and bake 15/20 minutes or until skewer inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from pans immediately and let them cool on a rack.
  • Variations:if you like a stronger mushroom flavour you can add 1/4 cup dried mushrooms soaked in hot water until tender and chopped- You can substitute diced bacon for the ham- You can add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts- Can be made cholesterol free by omitting egg yolks and using only whites+ using skimmed milk instead of full fat+ omitting the cheese.

    These muffins were a great change to regular muffins. I am making these for the second time. We had guests over the first time and they loved them too. A great way to use my extra mushrooms.


I live in a tiny flat in the center of Milan with my sweet dachshund dog named Penelope (Penny). I'm a doctor specializing in family medicine, though everybody tends to think I'm the nurse or the assistant, or perhaps even a student since I tend to look a lot younger than I am....everybody tells me I'm going to appreciate it, but for now I still find it a little annoying!! I've always loved cooking, when I was a child I wanted to be a patisserie cook (not sure the word is correct...), and I still can't understand how I got to be a doctor instead...anyway I still enjoy cooking at any time, and cooking for friends and family (Penelope included) is my weird way to show them my love (;P)
