- 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.
