Muffins have been a bit of a feature in our kitchen lately (see Strawberry Muffins) including this savoury Cheese Muffin version being added to the repertoire.

There is a good reason they’re such a staple as muffins are really the ultimate in family cooking – easy to make, eaten by all and extremely versatile.  The latter is because you can take a basic muffin mix and using whatever ingredients are on hand, turn them into a dozen yummy muffins that won’t last a day (in my house anyway).  The other great thing about muffins is that they freeze well and can always be on hand to pop into lunchboxes, picnic baskets or for a quick morning tea treat.

This Cheese Muffin recipe with a hint of herbs is fantastic for dunking in soups or soaking up stew juices.  They offer an alternative to bread for serving with meals and add a bit of variety.

Cheese Muffin Recipe

Ingredients

2 cups self-raising flour
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup milk
4 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup grated tasty cheese
1 teaspoon dried mixed herbs (optional)

Method

Preheat oven to 200C (390F) and lightly grease a 12 hole muffin pan.  Alternatively place muffin cases into the pan holes.

Add the flour to a mixing bowl and make a well.  Add the remaining ingredients and mix together.  Stir until the ingredients are just combined.  The mixture should still be pretty lumpy.
