Savory Prosciutto Muffins

Chopped onion caramelized in butter gives these muffins a sweet and savory flavor. The prosciutto adds a hit of salt and richness. Serrano ham or other cured ham can be used in place of the prosciutto, if preferred.

Serves 12

Prep Time 25 min

Total Time 45 min.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup minced prosciutto, (2 ounces)
  • 2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup nonfat buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat 12 (1/2-cup) muffin cups with cooking spray.

Step 2

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until golden, about 5 minutes. Stir in prosciutto and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Step 3

Whisk flour, rosemary, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pepper in a large bowl until combined. Whisk buttermilk, eggs and oil in a medium bowl until blended.

Step 4

Fold the onion mixture and buttermilk mixture into the dry ingredients with a rubber spatula until evenly moistened. Divide the batter among the prepared muffin cups.

Step 5

Bake the muffins until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes. Serve warm.
