Cheddar Onion Muffins

This hearty muffin is good for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I can make them quickly when I don't have any bread or rolls on hand; and we especially enjoy them hot from the oven with soups or stews.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a food processer, chop the onions and parsley together until minced, but not liquified.
  2. Remove from blender and set mixture aside.
  3. Without cleaning the food processor, add the cheese, egg, milk, sour cream, butter and sugar.

I used this recipe as a guideline but made too many substitutions & alterations (tofu sour cream w/ dill, soy milk, 1/2 cheddar & 1/2 mozzarella and different amts of parsley & onion) to give a meaningful rating. That said, the texture was good & I will definitely make again w/ additional alterations. Thanks for an inspiring recipe!

These were tasty, but a bit too oniony. Next time I make them, I'll reduce the amount to 1/4 cup and use green onions. I also added 1/2 cup of boiled ham to the recipe.
