Feta And Dill Muffins:

Feta and dill savoury muffins by Nadiya Hussain.

Nadiya says “I know when you hear the word ‘muffin’ you probably think of the blueberry or chocolate chip variety. 

However, muffins can be so much more. According to my husband, muffins are meant to be sweet, but I tend to veer in the direction of a savoury muffin accompanied by a sweet cup of tea – perhaps mainly to prove to him that I am always right.
