Cheese and Onion Muffins

Yields6 ServingsPrep Time30 minsCook Time30 mins

Ingredients

4 brown onions, sliced
3 tbsp olive oil
2 large eggs
200 ml milk
2 ¼ cups self raising flour
2 tsp dijon mustard
125 g mature cheddar grated
50 g parmesan cheese grated
50 g butter
1 bunch of chives, finely chopped

Method

1

In a heavy based pan add butter and cook the sliced onions gently at a low heat for 40 mins. Stir regularly until soft and caramelised. Once cooked set to the side to cool.

2

Preheat oven to 200°C.

3

In a mixing bowl whisk eggs, oil, milk, egg and mustard until well combined. When combined stir through the caramelised onions and the chives.

4

In a separate mixing bowl combine dry ingredients: flour, cheddar and 25g parmesan.

5

Add the dry ingredients to wet ingredients and gently combine by folding together. Don’t over mix. It is ok to see a few lumps of flour as this will help the muffins become soft and crumbly when they bake.

6

Gently spoon the mix into paper muffin cups in a muffin tray and sprinkle remaining 25g grated parmesan cheese on top.

7

Bake in the oven for 25 -30 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked in the centre. Once baked remove and cool on a wire rack.
