  3. Heat butter and milk in a pan over medium heat.
  4. Chop the spinach, add it to the mixture and stir for 1 minute until wilted.
  5. Remove from heat, cool slightly, then beat until smooth.
  6. Add parmesan, egg and spinach mixture.
  7. Crumble in the feta cheese, then stir gently until just combined.

  9. Fill pans with mixture.
  10. Bake for 20 minutes or until muffins are risen and cooked through.
