We had so much cheese in our fridge from when I made chutney I thought I would make some cheese muffins. We also had some red onions left over and thought they would work well along with chives. These muffins contain precisely three different types of cheese – Edam, Double Gloucester with Chives and Red Leicester. You can use whatever you have left over. Something like brie would work really well too as it would go all gooey when baked!
I made these muffins the day my friend and her one year old daughter came round, she referred to them as cheese scones but with a bit of butter and some red onion chutney you have your savoury scone. My friend said they were “delish” and her daughter enjoyed them too.
They’re great for a snack or even for breakfast. The great thing about making muffins is that even if your mixture is lumpy it still makes the lightest muffins so don’t worry to much on making your mixture really smooth. Also try crumbling the butter into the mixture as it makes them very airy.
Go ahead and try them, let me know which cheese combinations you use!
