Canadian Rosemary and Cheese Muffin Treats in BulgariaCanadian Rosemary and Cheese Muffin Treats in BulgariaIt was such a delight that even here in Bulgaria you can recreate a recipe that originated in Canada. We had some Canadian friends over and they took charge of the cooking. one evening The highlight of that Canadian food festival in Bulgaria was a herb based recipe that exceeded all expectations. Muffins with Rosemary and Goat's Cheese! Goat's cheese here in Bulgaria is called sirene.

They gave me the recipe and I have laid it out here for everyone to share.

The combination of rosemary, rasins goat cheese blend in to make a taste uniques and very special. These muffins were served alongside wild game this time round, but can be just as good with lamb, or pork dishes or even with salad.

Take note and enjoy this rosemary based herb dish.
