Fig muffins stuffed with goodness. Matched with lemon, they can't be beat.
Muffins are my lifeline. As a parent, and especially as a single parent, having a lifeline in the kitchen is essential for survival. Muffins, in their many forms, are always my backup plan.
No time for breakfast before school? We pull muffins out of the freezer. Need a lunch on the go? Muffins are easy to make and easy to pack. Need to feed a crowd? Muffins go a long way, and mini muffins go even further. They make the best snacks, desserts, meals. Muffins, I sing your praises.
These particular Stuffed Lemon Fig Muffins are a delightful twist on more ordinary muffin recipes. Stuffing a muffin with cheese, especially cheese that emerges from the oven warm and melty and creamy, is one of the better ideas I’ve ever had.
The hint of lemon and honey with sweet figs is a delicious flavor combination that will please the sophisticated foodie, yet still invoke satisfied smiles from the kids. Muffins, I find, are almost always a winner at the family table!
I like to make a big batch of these muffins on the weekend and enjoy them for breakfast and snacks all week long. When you wrap them individually for the freezer, you can freeze them for up to a month or refrigerate them for two days.
There's nothing like the relief that comes from remembering there's a nice batch of muffins ready to go, just stashed away in the freezer. Even better if you have a crowd coming over for brunch, or an impromptu coffee klatch after the school run. Not that that happens often.. but you know - like the Girl Scouts say, "Always be prepared"!
