When it comes to creating yummy stuff for the lunchbox, you can't go past these fetta, salami and capsicum savoury muffins. They are yummy, easy to make and freezer friendly, so perfect for baking for the lunchbox.
When it comes to muffins, I don't do tricky, there is no need to cook ingredients first or even to cream anything like the butter because...muffins work best when they are thrown together and thrown in the oven.
Fetta, salami and capsicum are an awesome mix of flavours. They work so well together!
The flavour combo of these basically reminds me of pizza, my favourite pizza! Capsicum is not a favourite around here for the kids, but I find that the red and yellow varieties are sweeter and therefore less offensive to kids.
Speaking of offensive, if you don't like salami, then these are just as yummy with bacon or prosciutto.
Why make savoury muffins?
I don't love sandwiches, so for me, any option that is savoury and a lunchbox filler is awesome. Master 6 is the same, sandwiches aren't his favourite thing. In fact when lunch contains a sandwich...more often than not it comes back home!
Use your favourite flavour combos, and make some savoury muffins! They have the added benefit of being freezer friendly and easy to defrost and store.
How do you freeze savoury muffins?
I freeze them as soon as they are cooled down. But first I refrigerate. Then I transfer to sealed containers. I don't bother to individually wrap, if the container has a good seal it's just a waste of plastics!
So what are you waiting for? Fetta, salami and capsicum savoury muffins a go and make school lunches just that bit more yummy!
