Savory Prosciutto Muffins

  • Active Time 25m
  • Total Time 45m

1 dozen 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.

Make Ahead Tip: Prepare onion-prosciutto mixture, sift together dry ingredients and sift together wet ingredients; keep each separate; cover and refrigerate for up 1 day. Combine components to create batter just before baking.

ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons 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 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

directions

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

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.

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.

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.

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