Rich, Rich Cheese Muffins by Paula Deen

"These delectable muffins are so rich they can be served with nothing more than a large green salad for a luncheon." -- Paula ain't lyin', folks.

Since we haven't finished the rice pudding yet, I had to look for something a little different to bake. It either had to be something I could take to work, or something more savory. Paula Deen's Cheese Muffins won out. They are from her The Lady & Sons, Too! cookbook. (Have you ever eaten at her restaurant in Savannah? If not, you should!) They are so easy to make, I should never buy cheese bread again. No kidding. They took longer to bake than prep.

BTW, this cookbook is available on Kindle. It's not a book with a lot of large pictures (in fact, there are none), so it would be an easy one to transfer to digital to save trees and space. :-)

Ingredients (pg. 126):
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp. sugar
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups coarsely grated Cheddar cheese (I used a package of already finely shredded sharp Cheddar)
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) melted butter

Sift all the dry ingredients together, then incorporate the cheese.

Then add the wet ingredients.

Bake at 350° for about 20 minutes. (It took a total of 27 minutes in my oven.)

Beautiful & Delicious!
