"I adapted a potato muffin recipe to create these savory muffins that helped use up my overflowing stock of vegetables from my garden! You could add any kind of fresh herb if you like, but they are very flavorful on their own. Serve a couple as a main dish with a side salad, or use as a veggie side to a meat dish. Yummy!"

chard leaves, stems removed and leaves thinly sliced
freshly ground black pepper to taste
finely shredded Swiss cheese
This was a great recipe for using chard and zucchini. The muffins freeze well, too.
It is tasty but far from healthy... No kidding about seriously greasing the muffin tin: I used paper liners and the mixture stuck to them like glue. The recipe is also vague when it calls for 8 chard leaves: leaves have various size, depending at what stage the cook picks them. Maybe it should state that you should steam a bunch and obtain xx ounces. Lastly, there is no reason why the shredded zucchini can't be sautéed together with the chard.
These are superb! I am trying not to eat them all before my husband returns. There was plenty of fat on the bacon so I didn't fry it in butter. I also greased the muffin pan with butter, no problems with sticking at all. I didn't have Swiss so used cheddar, it was fine but Swiss would've given it a kick. I'll be making these again soon and will sprinkle some grated parmesan on top before baking. Thanks so much for this excellent recipe!
I made these last night and they are fabulous! A great higer protein side to a simple salad for a healthy lunch.
If you've stumbled upon this recipe then you must be *thinking* about making these. Do yourself a favor and just DO IT! I followed the recipe exactly, doubled it even, and they came out incredibly delicious. Their density is more quiche-like than muffin but super good nonetheless.
Delicious! Made it twice now. Followed recipe as is except for using butter instead of cooking spray to grease muffin pan.
