Muffin Mania: Cheese and Salami muffins

Sometimes you just don't want to put sweet things in the lunchbox.  Some times, you don't want to put sandwiches in the lunchbox.  Sometimes you have grazers who would never eat a full sandwich anyway.  This recipe is a great solution for all the that - and hey, they're not just great for lunchboxes but for afternoon tea after school or not even for school kids!

If you have a cheese-or-savoury-lover rather than sweet give them a go - the salami doesn't need to be spicy.  Use bacon or proscuitto or something else if you don't like salami.

These freeze really well, if you want to serve warm, just heat them in the oven from frozen for about 15 minutes.. can't go wrong!

Makes 12-15 depending on size
75g melted butter
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 1/4 cups self raising flour
1 egg
100grams grated cheese
100grams sliced salami

Preheat oven to 180 degrees c

Grate your cheese and to 80% of the sliced salami, dice.

Into a mixing bowl, mix melted butter, and then gradually add the buttermilk and mix together.

Add the egg, flour and pepper, stir well until all combined.

Stir through the about 80% of cheese and all of the diced salami.

Add some herbs of your choosing.  I added some thyme, but parsley or rosemary would be nice too.

Spoon the mixture into cupcake cases, sprinkle your reserved cheese and sliced salami on top.

Bake for 20 minutes.  Try not to eat them all before you get them in the freezer!
