Parmesan Muffins with Prosciutto and Basil


I have become a really big fan of the NPR app on my iPad.  I am a news junkie, and they have a wide variety of articles.  I really like the Arts & Life section, especially the food section.  They have articles on food trends, companies/specific brands and a ton of mouthwatering recipes.  I get hungry every time I open the app.

I had great success with the first recipe I tried from NPR.com, Creamy Limoncello, so I decided to try another recipe.  I picked these muffins because I loved every ingredient in the title - parmesan, prosciutto and basil.  What's not to like?! These were simple to make, and they were packed with a ton of flavor.  I served them with some Italian grilled chicken and it was perfect.

(Printable Recipe)

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup minced prosciutto
1 Tbsp dried basil
10 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp Dijon mustard
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups plain low-fat yogurt

Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and heat oven to 450 degrees. Spray four mini muffin tins with vegetable oil-spray. To make regular-size muffins, use two regular muffin tins and reduce the oven temperature to 375 degrees.

Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, Parmesan cheese, prosciutto and basil in a medium bowl.

Beat butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.

Whisk mustard and eggs together, then beat into butter mixture until it forms pea-size lumps.

Add dry ingredients and yogurt into the butter mixture, alternating between dry ingredients and yogurt one third at a time. Beat until smooth.

Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.  Bake until golden brown, about 12 minutes for mini muffins or 25 minutes for regular size muffins.

*Warm leftovers in a 300- to 325-degree toaster oven.*

  1. These sound super good Steph and I look forward to trying them. "NPR app on my iPad" - is this some sort of oriental language? :-)
