parmesan muffins the party starter
These bad boys will surely liven any party or social event and I’m sure many will ask you for the recipe or what’s the secret ingredient you’ve added to the parmesan muffins that makes it so exotic. Well, as for the secret you could tell them it’s a family secret passed down for generations…
That’ll throw them off for a while hahaha !!! *stop giggling*
Whether you are making these for the family or for a special event, the added twist of the herb chadon beni will certainly lift a few eyebrows because of the creative mix of sweet, cheesy and pungent. But it’s all about control. Since these parmesan muffins already has a distinct taste or taste memory in people’s minds we don’t really want to “rock the boat” with mr chadon beni’s pungent flavour. So great care has to be taken when mixing these flavours, together.
This is where the taste buds came in to play, while making these parmesan muffins. But, don’t worry all the experimentation hasÂ already been done so no worries again. My taste buds eventually, after much tasting, decided upon 1 tsp of finely chopped chadon beni to be added…just enough to know he is there but not too much to interfere with parmesan’s slightly tart but milky flavour.
And so another simply trini cooking original recipe was born. Chadon beni parmesan muffins has definitely gotten my trini tongue’s stamp of approval and now everyone can try it. Hmmm! Felt like the mouse in Ratatouille for a while there being the head taster lol!!
So put on your aprons and hats and let’s bake some parmesan muffins with a trini twist.
