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.

Oh Kate, this was soooo goood. Just pulled them out of the oven and the aroma is definitely yum factor 10. Had to sample, what a great flavor. The rosemary is not too strong, but enough to give it nice flavor.
Thanks for the recipe Kate!
