Mini Feta and Tomato Muffins with Salami and Pesto

Mini feta muffins

Simon did our grocery shopping this week.  Yes, that was nice of him I suppose, but we ended up with nothing for our morning teas and lunches.  I’ve come to the rescue and made us these mini muffins :)
These make a cute snack and are pretty healthy as you don’t have any sugar or butter.  They are also a good finger food idea if you are having a party.

Makes 36

2 cups self-raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon chilli powder
⅓ cup sun dried tomatoes, chopped (I like the Delmaine tomatoes that are in water rather than oil)
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
150g crumbed feta cheese
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 large eggs, beaten
100g salami
⅓ cup basil pesto

Preheat the oven to 200°C.  Grease 3 12-hole mini muffin pans.
Place the flour, baking powder, salt, chilli powder, tomatoes and both cheeses into a bowl and make a well in the centre.  Add the milk, oil and eggs into the bowl and mix until just combined.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared pans and bake for 15 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.
Cut each muffin in half and fill with a piece of salami and a smear of pesto.  Top each muffin with a small dollop of pesto if desired.

* If you don’t like tomatoes these can be omitted. 
** If you like onion, add one small one, diced.
*** If you don’t like spicy food or are making these for small children you might want to omit the chilli powder.

  1. Made these to take to a luncheon. Easy to make and tasted good thanks!

  2. i didnt do the whole salami pesto deal, EXCEPT when it called for oil I used 2 tbsp of pesto instead and a wee bit of oil. very wee. also used the whole onion, doubled the recipe and used regular pan. i had to bake at 350 for 17 min at least. also added garlic powder. they were a hit
