Savory Dill Ricotta Muffins

Savory Dill Ricotta Muffins

I refer to these quickbreads as muffins, but these savory dill and ricotta delights satisfyingly serve as dinner rolls just as well as they do for a snack or a breakfast treat. I prepared and enjoyed them alongside Hungarian mushroom soup.

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups unbleached white flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives, minced, or a few teaspoons of dried chives
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
Instructions:
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and herbs.

  • In a small saucepan, melt the butter over low heat.

  • In another medium bowl, beat together the ricotta and buttermilk using a wire whisk. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

  • Pour the ricotta milk mixture, along with the melted butter, into the dry ingredients. Using a rubber spatula, stir until just combined.

  • Spoon the batter evenly into 12 greased muffin cups. Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until the tops of the muffins are lightly browned and a cake tester inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean. Let the muffins sit in the pan for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool for about 30 minutes.
