A DELICIOUS BREAKFAST CHEESE MUFFINS RECIPE!

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, which makes 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 you make them even if you don’t freeze.

What else you can add in these savory breakfast muffins?

For this recipe, I used ham, 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 in 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 and pillowy – cheesy breakfast muffins

You can barely make a mistake when making these muffins as they are easy and fast to prepare, but there are a couple of tips that I would like to share 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, just 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 don’t mix it together with the batter. 
  • Cook them in preheated oven and use the oven fan, not the grill of the oven. 
  • If the muffins get golden brown to fast which depends on the oven then just lower down the temperature and let them cook for the rest of the time.
