Recipes for Quick & Easy Savory Zucchini Muffins

Both of these savory muffins are delicious served hot with soups or salads. The zucchini keeps them moist, but when very finely grated, the zucchini isn’t too obvious so that zucchini haters won’t know what they’re eating. These muffins also freeze well.

Timesaving Hints: Food processors are great timesavers when it comes to grating zucchini and chopping the chives. They also make grating cheese quick and easy, but I usually purchase cheese already grated so I don’t have to take any time to do it myself. If you purchase a 1/4 cup size ice cream scoop, you’ll find that it not only saves time when filling the muffin pan, but the muffins will be uniform in size. I have also found that the silicone muffin pans or the individual silicone liners prevent sticking of any kind and no greasing is necessary.

Either of these muffins can be assembled in about 10 minutes hands-on time. During the 15-20 minutes that they are baking, you can be putting the rest of your dinner together or setting the table.
