Zaatar Pull Apart Muffins

Updated: Jan 10

This year I am unfortunately not having a large Thanksgiving get together, but I do have my parents and sister and that's what matters! We all know the importance of nourishment through food and that's why I made these Zaatar Pull Apart Muffins. This is how we're starting out our Thanksgiving day and I think you should too.

These muffins are the easiest breakfast you can make while prepping all the rest of your Thanksgiving foods. You only need 4 ingredients to make them and they take less than 10 minutes to make. Sure, they are not a traditional Thanksgiving food, but Thanksgiving is a day to come together and be grateful for what you have. I am grateful for food and the access I have to it. These muffins make me feel warm and cozy and that's the kind of food we should be eating this day.

You don't need to make these on just Thanksgiving day - these make for a delicious meal preppable breakfast, a side dish to make if you're hosting a brunch, or as fun snacks for your friends or kids. It's up to you how to enjoy them, but I know you WILL. So, let's get to the recipe.

Yields: 5

Portion: 1 muffin

Prep time: 10 minutes

Total time: 25 minutes

This recipe is vegetarian.



1 Pillsbury Cresent Rolls pack

3 tbsps zaatar

¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup shredded mozzarella (to your liking, cheese is measured with the heart)



1.Preheat oven: preheat the oven to 350

2. Prep muffins: roll the dough out and cut them into smaller pieces that you can roll into small balls. Place these on the side.

3. Prep zaatar: in a small bowl add in the zaatar and olive oil and mix well until you achieve an even consistency.

4. Put it together: in a mixing bowl pour in the dough balls, zaatar olive oil mix, and mozzarella. Coat the dough balls well with the mozzarella and zaatar. Transfer to a mufin tray. Add five balls into each muffin pocket. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.

5. Enjoy!
