Breakfast Cheddar Muffins

Andy Anderson !


Whether it’s in the middle of Winter, or the heat of Summer, the smell of these muffins baking is enough to get the sleepiest person out of bed and headed to the kitchen.

The ingredients can be assembled the night before, and then popped into the oven the next morning. Add a sausage patty, and/or some eggs, and you have a complete breakfast that your guests will love you for.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
