I went a few months rarely indulging in savoury smokos on the cattle station. Instead I made a beeline for the cake tin and if feeling extra naughty, the biscuit tin too. Since baking myself, I’ve started to enjoy savoury bakes just as much with quiches and savoury muffins being a favourite of mine. Both recipes are super simple and you can add just about anything, perfect for making use of left overs. Go on, be adventurous!



  • 2 cups grated cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Lashings of seasoning – I use pepper, mixed herbs and a shed load of garlic paste
  • Filling – The more the better! Try roasted veggies, feta, pine nuts, sweetcorn, bacon, peas etc


  1. Grease muffin tin – I use spray oil
  2. Mix flour and cheese. Make a well in the Center
  3. Beat eggs, oil, milk and seasoning together
  4. Fold in dry ingredients
  5. Add filling
  6. Bake for 15 mins at 200c until skewer comes out clean and muffins are golden
