Garlic Bread Muffins #MuffinMonday

These savory muffins made with roasted garlic and cheese are the perfect accompaniment to your pasta dinner.

It's Muffin Monday.......

Each month, Stacy of Food Lust People Love, invites us to join her on the last Monday of the month sharing new muffin recipes.
Muffin Monday

#MuffinMonday is a group of muffin loving bakers who get together once a month to bake muffins. You can see all of our lovely muffins by following our Pinterest board. Updated links for all of our past events and more information about Muffin Monday can be found on our home page.

Today I'm sharing a small batch of muffins that I made up to go with spaghetti dinner earlier in the month.  I am an unashamed carboholic and always like to have bread of some sort to go with my pasta. I don't understand what people that don't have bread with their pasta use to get up all that sauce from the plate LOL.

These savory muffins made with roasted garlic and cheese are the perfect accompaniment to your pasta dinner.


  • 1 small head of garlic
  • 1 t. olive oil
  • 1 c. flour
  • 1 t. baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 T. sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 1/2 c. shredded mozzarella
  • Dried Italian Herbs, if desired


How to cook Garlic Bread Muffins

  1. Cut off the top of the garlic head, exposing the cloves.  Place root side down on a piece of aluminum foil.  Drizzle with the olive oil and seal in the foil.  Place into a 400* oven for 20-30 minutes, until very soft and fragrant.
  2. Remove from oven, open foil and let cool.
  3. Combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl.  Whisk together the egg and milk.  Squeeze the roasted garlic from the bulb into the egg mixture and whisk again until incorporated.  Make a well in the dry ingredients and add the egg mixture.  Stir just until combined.  Stir in the cheese.
  4. Divide the batter between 6 muffin cups that have been treated with baking spray.  Sprinkle the tops with Italian Herbs, if desired.  Bake in a preheated 375* oven for 15-20 minutes, until a skewer inserted removes cleanly.


Prep time includes allowing the garlic to cool. Cook time includes the roasting of the garlic.

  1. Garlic and cheese! I'm so in. I often make garlic bread to go with a pasta meal, along with a mixed salad, which balances it all out, right?

  2. These sound PHENOMENAL!! And perfect for a spaghetti or lasagna; I can just smell the roasted garlic!

  3. Garlic bread in a muffin! Oh my goodness!! These sound sooo good!

  4. These remind me of a bread mom used to make that we adored. (Actually, it was little more than canned biscuits chopped up, butter and a herbed salad blend.) Yours look much better! :)
