CHEDDAR MUFFINS

 

Sharing Mountain Recipes
by Randi Lee Levin
Personally, I think that these muffins are a perfect accompaniment to a howl of soup or chili. However, many customers would grab these out of my delivery basket early in the morning. They used to tell me that the cheesy taste and moist texture, in addition to a few vegetables, made these a great food to start the day with. A versatile recipe, whereby one can add different vegetables, meats or fruits and a variety of seasonings according to what the muffins are accompanying, making this an exceptional addition to all recipe collections.
