Savoury Muffin with Squaquerello and Treviso Radicchio

Ingredients for 6 persons

100 g Nonno Nanni Squaquerello;
1 bunch braised Treviso radicchio;
1 egg;
150 ml partly skimmed milk;
6 tablespoons flour;
1/2 packet baking powder;
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil;
salt and pepper to taste;
dash of chilli oil

Nonno Nanni Squaquerello is a fresh, distinctly flavoured soft cheese.


Start by braising the red radicchio. Chop it into little pieces and put in a frying pan where you've heated a small amount (really small) of oil and half a garlic clove. Add a small piece of vegetable bouillon cube, salt, pepper and a little water and let braise, making sure it doesn't stick.

Meanwhile, combine the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt in a bowl. In another bowl, beat the eggs with the milk and oil until you have a homogeneous mixture. Add this to the flour mixture and mix.

Then add the Nonno Nanni Squaquerello, the braised radicchio and a little chilli oil. Mix and taste for salt and pepper (it should have some flavour and the Treviso radicchio is a little bitter).

Fill baking cups and put in a preheated 190°C oven for 25 minutes, remove from the oven, allow to cool and ...buon appetito!
