Cheesy breakfast muffins
Cheesy breakfast muffins – packed with lots of flavors and delicious ingredients that everyone would love.
One of my favorite parts is that they can be made ahead, making them perfect for parties and a delicious Sunday morning breakfast with your family.
Why are these cheesy breakfast muffins so good?
They are super quick and super cheesy with ingredients that you probably have in your kitchen at the moment.
They can be made ahead and covered in plastic bags and freeze for up to 1 month. But they also stay moist for a couple of days after making them even if you don’t freeze.
Ingredients and substitutes used for these cheese muffins:
- cheeses: white cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese, and mozzarella
- sour cream or greek yogurt
- olive oil
- all-purpose flour
- baking powder
- baking soda
I used ham for this recipe, but you can either use bacon, pepperoni, or anything else that you have in your fridge.
If you are a mushroom lover, you can add some chopped precooked mushrooms to it.
Cooked spinach is also a great idea for this recipe; it gives so much flavor and color to the muffins.
Tips for making soft cheesy breakfast muffins
You can barely make a mistake when making these muffins as they are easy and fast to prepare, but I would like to share a couple of tips with you.
- Gradually add the wet ingredients into the dry while constantly whisking so there aren’t any lumps from the flour. But even if you have lumps, continue whisking for 30 seconds or so, and the batter will come together as needed. Note that every flour absorbs more or less moisture sometimes. You may find yourself adding a little bit more to thicken the batter.
- Add the cheddar cheese in the middle of the muffins and mix it with the batter.
- Cook them in a preheated oven and use the oven fan, not the grill of the oven.
- If the muffins get golden brown too fast, which depends on the oven, lower the temperature and cook for the rest of the time.
