Always Order Dessert: Savory Ramp and Cheddar Muffins

Since I have a giant bundle of ramps, I've been combing the internet for new and interesting things that I can do with them.  And that's how I came across this yummy recipe for savory muffins that I will be devouring every morning for breakfast.  The ramps are pretty pungent in these, so make sure you've got some extra-strength gum for afterwards.  And I also think that some crumbled bacon would add just the right touch, if you're so inclined.

Savory Ramp and Cheddar Muffins
From Always Order Dessert blog

1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1½ cups chopped ramps
1 large egg
½ cup whole milk
½ cup chicken broth
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground mustard powder (or use 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard)
1½ teaspoons sea salt
1¾ cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1½ cups freshly grated cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350°F. Generously grease a 12-cup muffin pan (or a giant 6-cup muffin pan).

Heat butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat and add ramps. Sauté for 2 to 3 minutes, just until slightly wilted. Remove from heat and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together egg, milk, broth, olive oil, sugar, mustard, and salt. Add flour and baking powder and stir gently until evenly combined. Fold in grated cheese and cooked ramps.

Divide into prepared muffin pan, and bake about 20 minutes, or until puffed up, golden around the edges, and a tester inserted in center comes out clean. (Giant muffins will take about 5-7 minutes longer.)

Makes 6 giant or 12 standard muffins
