Bento Bites: Spring Onion and Cheese Muffins

We don't do as much savoury baking as we used to, but sometimes we still try a new recipe for muffins. I think this will change now that we are back on track with bento making. I made this recipe twice already. One time in September for our lunch at home and once last week for the bento. I love the taste of these because there cheese with herbs used in the recipe. Not the creamy kind, but just a hard cheese that has a mixture of herbs in it. The cheese you choose largely determines the flavour. So use a good brand of cheese with a nice combination of spices in it. The original recipe comes from Excellent Eten.

Spring Onion Cheese Muffins (makes 16)
- 200 gr self rising flour
- 2 eggs
- 200 ml milk
- 8 tbsp olive oil
- 200 gr good quality cheese with herbs, grated
- 6 spring onions, in thin rings
- salt and pepper

Pre heat the oven to 200 degrees. Mix eggs, milk, oil and add the self rising flour after that. Mix again until you have a smooth batter. Stir in the spring onions and cheese. Add salt and pepper to taste if needed. It depends on the saltiness of the cheese. Scoop the batter in the muffin tins and bake for about 35 minutes.
