There is this Easter Muffin Recipe with Parmesan that is used every year in Italy as a way to celebrate the holiday.
The ingredients are connected to the history of easter, sacrality and christianity. Bread is Christ bread of life, wine and his blood, meat is his sacrifice and egg is a symbol of life and resurrection. The denominations vary but these savory muffins are like small panettone mixed with aged parmesan and pepper.
The symbolism of the dish is complex: in fact the meeting of all the Easter foods from the egg to the cheese that symbol of the sacrifice, to the parmesan placed in the middle that it is a symbol of the sepulcher and of the resurrection. The same yellow color indicates healthiness. In italy, women begin to prepare them before Holy Week and go on until Holy Thursday when everything stops waiting for Easter Sunday breakfast. It is good to respect this tradition but also to make it less demanding we thought of proposing these cheese muffins that are easier and quicker to make but still very tasty and you can taste them and enjoy them as appetizers to accompany an aperitif.
