Savory Basil Zucchini Muffins
40 mins (prep 20, cooking 20)
15 ingredients

I found this recipe on another website today, and everyone here liked them so much that I figured I should post it for easy access. This is originally from Gourmet Magazine, July 1990. The recipe calls for the muffins to be sliced in half and served with butter and sliced radish, as a tea sandwich. However, they are tasty with or without radish, so I figured I'd just post it as a muffin recipe and not strictly a tea sandwich. My boyfriend and I ate the sandwiches with some homemade chai tonight, and felt very British. Of course, it would have been more British to eat them at 5PM and not 10, but we silly Americans can never get those things right. Supposedly using mini-muffin tins yields a better tea sandwich, but I used a regular muffin tin and was very satisfied with the result.
