Sun Dried Tomatoes and Cottage Cheese Muffins.

This weeks' ingredient,Sun Dried Tomaoes, was selected by Amy. She has been focusing on healthy, lo-cal finger foods. This recipe is from Heidi Swanson's Blog, 101 Cookbooks http://www.101cookbooks.com/archives/cottage-cheese-muffins-recipe.html.Heidi indicates that this recipe is from the book Vegetarian Supercook
by UK-based cookbook author Rose Elliot, whose recipes tend to strike a nutritional balance. As Heidi points out these muffins are not bready, they are more of a quiche consistency.Very easy to make, these muffins would go nicely with a Brunch Menu or they would make a nice lunch with a small side salad.
