Tuna Corn and Potato Muffins

I made these little savoury muffins to go with soup one night. It's such a easy quick one that I thought you might find it useful as well. I didn't add any flour to it, so it's really just potatoes and eggs that are holding it together.

It's really adorable holding these little muffins in your hand and dipping it into soup! I am sure it will be a good picnic dish as well or lunch box for school or work.

I took these photos when the muffins were not cooled yet. But once it is, you can peel away the wrapper and eat it as it is. I used chilli tuna (yes, I do like chili in everything!) but I'm thinking some basil leaves will accentuate the flavour as well. Another quick fix, is to use some cheese in it and make it cheesy tuna and corn potato muffins!!! Ah, more to experiment.

Tuna Corn and Potato Muffins (makes around 10)
3 potatoes cooked in hot salted water
2 tins of tuna of your choice
1/3 cup of corn

Season with salt and pepper

2 tablespoons of olive oil
1/2 cup of soy milk

Preheat oven 180 C. Line muffin tray with muffin cups.
Mash potato with olive oil and soy milk (or normal milk). Then fold in tuna and corn. Season. Spoon mixture into muffin cups. Bake for 25 minutes.

I like the idea of a totally savoury, flourless muffin :)

I thought initially That it's made with flour tuna and corn. It sounds great with mash potato and looks healthy too!

This would go perfect with a side salad or light pasta dish. A great twist on the average biscuit and i love it! The tuna part is the most exciting to me!

Anncoo said...

Love your savory muffins! I don't think I have seen chili tuna here. But you did give me an idea to add chili in my tuna. ;)

Daphne, I have made any savoury muffins before. This sounds very good. I am not so crazy bout tuna so I will probably replace with sardines and with lots of chilli! Thanks for the idea.

These are so much fun! I never would have thought to do this with potatoes and tuna!

tigerfish said...

What a superb idea to pair these with soup! Hmmm...maybe can directly dunk them in the soup too? LOL

Never thought of it with soup. Great idea. But I think my girls will love to eat them just as they are. They look so delicious. Thanks very much for sharing. Hope you have a great weekend. MaryMoh at
