The cutest mini muffins made with flakey corn meal, and loaded with cheddar cheese and chives.
1 1/2cupsall purpose flour
1/2cupyellow corn meal(medium grind)
1 1/4cupshalf and half
2eggs lightly beaten
4tablespoonsbutter melted and cooled slightly
3/4cupshredded cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a mini muffin tin and set aside.
Combine flour, sugar, corn meal, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Combine half and half, eggs, oil and melted butter in a separate medium bowl and mix well.
Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and using a spatula stir until just blended. Gently stir in the cheese and chives. Fill muffins tins 3/4 full and bake for 10-12 minutes, until lightly golden and a tooth pick inserted in the center just barely comes out clean.
Can also make these into regular sized muffins. Just bake for about 20 minutes.
