These muffins are heavenly little puffs of deliciousness! They are very similar to the cheesy biscuits/muffins you get at Jim n' Nicks BBQ. They are great all by themselves or with butter or honey butter. Mmmmm.... We had them with chili tonight and they were a hit.
1 1/2 cups flour (plus 2 tablespoons for high altitude)
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
4 tablespoons melted butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
In a bowl mix together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Add milk, melted butter, egg, and vanilla and stir until just combined. Stir in cheddar cheese. Scoop into greased mini-muffin tins with each little cup about 3/4 full. Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from tins and cool a little before serving. Serve with butter or honey butter.
*You can also make these as regular size muffins just increase cooking time to 17-20 minutes.
