Top of the Morning Muffins

Tasty savory muffins to keep around all the time.


  • Prep Time : 10 min

  • 1/3 cup Unsalted butter
  • 1 cup Red bell peppers, diced (1/4-inch)
  • 2/3 cup Green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup California Black Ripe Olives, wedged
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) Grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup Buttermilk
  • 1 Egg, beaten
  • 2 cups All purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Granulated sugar

1 Melt butter in a medium-sized sauté pan over medium heat. Add red peppers and cook for 3-4 minutes until soft, stir in green onions, then pour into a medium-sized mixing bowl to cool.

  1. These look delicious.

  2. Am I missing something- can’t find the green onions listed as an ingredient.
    Looks like a good recipe -might also be tasty with chopped sun dried tomatoes and shredded zucchini.

    Any ideas how to make this in a loaf pan? or bundt pan? or anything besides a muffin pan..looks delicious and I may even make if for Shavuot.

    • I think a loaf pan would be best and just cook it a lot longer, maybe 40 minutes and check every 5 or so after that.
