Savory Muffins: Broccoli Cheddar Muffins

The other day I was hanging out at one of my favorite online places and I saw that Gooseberry Patch posted about savory muffins that they had shared with a local television station and I was intrigued...

Savory muffins... immediately I thought "Self... these babies will freeze well AND they will offer great portion control not to mention individual dinner/lunch options."

Then myself and I got a bright idea and thought they would be great to take to a gathering that some of the Real Farmwives of America and Friends (RFOA) and I were heading to...

Speaking of RFOA... did you see that this week they interviewed me and are voting on which Gooseberry Patch Cookbook I will share with you here and the GIVEAWAY?  Check it out and let them know which book you'd like to see here...

Speaking of books to giveaway... here is a sneak peek of two BRAND NEW books I will be giving away in May BEFORE you can buy them ;)

Now where were we... ahh savory muffins... muffins aren't just for the sweet tooth... just sayin'

I tweaked their Jumbo Quiche Muffins... to make a smaller version and then I gave their yummy Zesty Chicken Salsa a try...

I will be sharing the Quiche Muffins here tomorrow and the Zesty Chicken Salsa later in May as a feature on my series on Pennies and Blessings.

But today is about my little experiment of Broccoli Cheddar muffins... now GP shared a Broccoli Casserole Muffin that I want to try sometime soon, but with all the baking I was into, I wanted to do something a little quicker...

I started out with one of those 12 oz steamer bags of broccoli... cooked it up and chopped it up

Then I melted up a 1/2 of stick of butter

Then I added in 1 Cup of Shredded Cheddar

And a 8.5 oz box of my secret weapon... Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix... I heart Jiffy... just sayin'

1/2 Cup Chopped Onion

4 Eggs Beaten and Salt & Pepper

Now make sure you line your 12 cup muffin tin with cup liners and fill them all the way up. Bake at 350 degrees until they pass the toothpick test... about 15-20 minutes.

8 GOODe Thoughts:

Yum! gotta try this one!

I can vouch for them. They were delish! ;-)

I just made a broccoli casserole out of a gooseberry patch cookbook. Now I'm intrigued to try it in a muffin form.

Mmmmmm those sound yummy! I have a broccoli corn casserole that I just love and this sounds kind of like a muffin version. I need to try these! I {heart} Jiffy too!

These look amazing! I am so going to try them.

Those look really delicious! I could sure go for one right about now! :-)

Looking so awesome that I wish I was eating one right now. My mom makes meals into muffins. Literally. Full of protein and nutrients, she grinds up just about anything into muffins and I love them. Thanks for sharing. I'll definitely try this one out.

I really need to keep some of that Jiffy mix on hand :)
Thanks so much for sharing a yummy, and easy and quick recipe !
Have a great weekend.
