Orange & Rosemary Savory Muffins

Orange & Rosemary Savory Muffins

Savory muffins are a delicious breakfast item, and they make a fragrant option to your brunch buffet. They also pair well with soups and salads as a substitute for bread. Limoneira® Oranges provide a touch of sweetness along with their tang, with fresh rosemary to contrast.

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary chopped
  • 1 Limoneira® orange zest & juice
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan finely grated
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 egg


  • Prepare a 6 cup muffin pan by greasing lightly with butter.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • In a bowl, measure the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Stir to distribute evenly.
  • Add the chopped rosemary and orange zest. Stir with a fork.
  • Add the Parmesan to the dry ingredients and blend well.
  • In a second bowl, beat the egg lightly, then add the oil as you continue to beat
  • Add the yogurt as you stir continuously.
  • Add the orange juice last, stirring to blend.
  • As quickly as you can, pour the wet ingredients onto the dry. Stir only as much as needed to thoroughly blend the ingredients – no more.
  • Spoon into the six muffin cups, and bake in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes. The tops should be lightly browned, and a clean knife inserted into the center should come out clean.
  • Remove from the pan and allow to cool on a rack for about 10 minutes before eating.
