This week on the blog we wanted wanted to try a comfort food for the cold days ahead of us. Something you can enjoy eating by a fireplace after a walk in the forest. In my small studio apartment the fireplace is not an option. So visually it’s kind of a failure. But I still do have enough space to prepare the food of my choice.
Today we prepared savory muffins; mixed with nuts, ham and Brie de Meaux. Vegetarians who follow us can simply remove the ham from the ingredients. We tried it and it was just as good.
Fun fact : Since the 8th century Brie de Meaux (brie cheese from the town of Meaux) has also been known as the King’s cheese. So have in mind that this are not just any ordinary muffins we have here !♛
