Wild Garlic Savoury Muffins

If you’re walking through a patch of countryside where wild garlic grows you will smell it before you see it. The garlicky scent is hard to miss and you'll find it in multiple areas across the UK from late winter until the end of spring. The leaves can be eaten raw or cooked and can be enjoyed in a range of different dishes, so, if you are enjoying a springtime walk in the country and start sniffing it out, go foraging!
Taking advantage of this wild and whiffy seasonal gem, I've mixed it up with parmesan, cheddar and added some sweetness with chopped red pepper.  If you love a savoury scone you are going to be a fan of these delicious cheesy, garlicky muffins, they make a filling snack and can be used as a side to a salad or big bowl of homemade spring soup!
Enjoy, Gill X
