These Savory Mushroom Blue Cheese Muffins are equally delicious with dinner or breakfast. Or snack or brunch for that matter. And they are easy to make too.
Most people think of muffins as sweet treats, but they don't have to be. Savory muffins are delicious with just about any meal from breakfast to dinner.
And these Mushroom Blue Cheese Muffins are no exception. They start with sautéing mushrooms in some garlic, and then adding some chopped green onions and blue cheese to a basic muffin mix.
The flavor combination meant these disappeared quite quickly, with only a few left over to reheat for a second meal.
Thanks to Ashley at Cheese Curd in Paradise for gathering us together to give you plenty of additional Muffin recipe.
