2 cups all-purpose flour
2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons dried dillweed or 2 Tablespoons minced fresh dill
1 egg, well beaten
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup mayonnaise
3/4 cup milk
1 cup finely chopped smoked salmon
12 cubes chevre (goat cheese)


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and grease or spray muffin pans well. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Stir dill into the mixture and make a well in the center. Combine beaten egg, melted butter, mayonnaise, and milk; stir in chopped smoked salmon. Pour egg/salmon mixture into the well in the dry ingredients and blend quickly with as few strokes as possible.

Fill muffin pans 3/4 full. Bake approximately 25 minutes until a skewer inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean. Cut 1-inch diameter rounds from the top of each muffin and insert a cheese cube in each. Replace lids to allow cheese to soften. Remove muffins from pans; serve warm.

Makes: 6 large muffins: 3 inches in diameter, 1-1/2 inches deep.
