Frequently Asked Questions

How long do these muffins keep?

These vegetarian savoury muffins will keep for 3 days in the refrigerator.

Can I make these muffins ahead of time?

Yes, you can make the muffin batter about 12 hours ahead of time by keeping it in the fridge. Add the filling at the last minute and then bake.

Can I freeze?

Yes, absolutely! If you want to make these muffins for a big party, I recommend making them a few days or weeks in advance and freeze them. Then, the day before you want to serve them, take them out of the freezer and reheat them in the oven for 3 minutes before serving.
