Black Garlic & Herb Muffins #4theLoveofGarlic

Don’t expect Eric, Angel, or Edward to accept any of your dinner invitations if you choose to make a #4theLoveofGarlic recipe! Just a thought. Buffy may show, though. Maybe.

Black garlic. Have you tried it? It’s unique and really gives some dimension to a savory recipe. It tastes a little sweet, which may throw you off when working with the garlic.

The muffin recipe is a perfect on-the-go option. You may want to keep them chilled since the recipe does include eggs. The way the bread puffed up with the egg gave the muffin appearance. All the herbs and garlic mixed perfectly together to give each bite a slightly sweet and definitely savory taste. So, who wants one…or maybe two Black Garlic & Herb Muffin?

If you missed my post a few days ago about the sponsored event, you can check it all out here. All the recipes shared will include some serious garlic love. No joke, I have a box full of all different kinds of garlic from Melissa’s Produce, which I so appreciate. This weekend I will be grilling/roasting the elephant garlic and grilling a flat bread pizza with other delicious toppings. It is grilling season after all.

That huge bulb of garlic will surly require the help from our new kitchen toy, thanks to Dreamfarm. Super excited to share my shiny new Garjet.

This recipe could be for breakfast but with all the savory love, I would compliment it with maybe tomato basil soup. So, it’s really a multifunctional recipe. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack…you get the picture.

If you don’t have black garlic, you will want to ease off on the amount of regular garlic you add to the recipe. (Especially if you were hoping to impress Selene.) I have managed to include names from all my favorite vampire shows. Just call me a vampire nerd.

Now, are you looking for some other recipe ideas? Here are few: Good Ol’ Fashioned Southern Biscuits, Just off the Vine Tomato and Cheese Tart and Tomato Soup with Roasted Red Peppers and Herbs,
