Cheddar Onion Muffins

These are my favorite savory muffins to serve with eggs, soups or stews. They are just as delicious made in mini muffin pans, but reduce the baking time to 12 minutes

These muffins are great. I followed Derf's lead and used veggie oil instead of butter and they were wonderful. I will make them many times and look forward to trying them with some pepperjack cheese instead of cheddar. I cut the recipe in half and made 6 nice size muffins. Thanks Geema.

I make these muffins on a regular basis - they are excellent. I find that they are particularily delicious if you slice them in half, put sliced cheese (of your choice) on each half, and then stick them in the microwave for about 30 seconds! mmmm...lovely!

We had these tonight in place of potatoes with our chicken, they were very good. I was out of butter so I used veggie oil, it worked just fine, also used splenda instead of sugar, I got 12 medium size muffins. We will freeze the rest to go with the stew we'll be making this week. We will for sure make these again, thanks for sharing.
