Some word of advice!

  • Whatever veggies you choose to add to these muffins, make sure they are dry and have no moisture in it. Extra moisture in veggies will make the dough difficult to bind.
  • I have added small amount of sugar to these muffins. Sugar helps to balance the flavor and make them brown during baking.  
  • Add buttermilk slowly. Once the dough starts to look like a crumble, add veggies to it. Add buttermilk as needed and knead gently until it forms a dough. 
  • Divide the dough into 8 equal sized balls. Top with extra cheese (optional) and bake as directed.
  • For a brown top –  broil these muffins for 2-3 minutes. Depending on the oven, it may take longer.

      Kelsey, this recipe uses all purpose flour. If you have that then please use that.

      Hope this helps!

      Buttermilk is a combination of vinegar and milk. For buttermilk – Pour milk into a bowl. Add vinegar to it. Stir to combine. Let sit for 5 minutes until the milk begins to curdle and becomes acidic. Buttermilk is ready.
