Savoury Mini-Muffins

We’ve made these a couple of times as a starter. They look and taste great. They also have the advantage that they’re gluten free as they lack wheat. In both recipes the vegetables and eggs provide the bulk. Each recipe makes 12 mini-muffins, which is convenient as mini-muffin trays usually hold 24. If you don’t have a mini-muffin tray then you can use a standard size muffin tray, but use less mixture for each muffin thus making really small ones.
