I have clearly been remiss in my muffin making lately. I missed a few weeks since I had some other goodies for you but I’m back this week! I’ve also just been a little busy with “real life” stuff that I won’t bore you with like working a ton and chasing after Molly who now gets into everything! This week we were assigned a simple cheese muffin. I didn’t want to change it up too much. I mean, what’s not to like about cheese all by its self? Not to mention, Maddy is a cheese-a-holic so didn’t want to mess with it since she’s the main muffin eater in our household.
For my version I decided to pair sharp Asiago with fresh rosemary. The result is a lovely muffin that is light and flavorful. This is perfect as an afternoon snack or served with dinner. The rosemary is fragrant and adds such a nice flavor to these savory little muffins.
