The ultimate picnic fare, since we're entering a full-scale spring. :D
Delicious savory muffins with fried onions and corn kernels scattered through a lovely polenta-like base made with yogurt, Gouda and chili flakes.
Great comfort food and hunger-fighters so they're ideal as a take-away snack during the day.
