Corn and Cheese Mini Muffins

Corn and Cheese Mini Muffins

These mini muffins are great for breakfast, they can be packed into lunchboxes or carried to picnics. Since they’re best while the cheeses are soft, if you decide to pack and carry them, keep them in an insulated container to allow them to stay warm.

    Unbaked and baked corn and cheese mini muffins in pan
  • Cool the muffins in the pan(s) for a few minutes.
  • Lift the muffins on one side then tilt them so that air can circulate to prevent trapped steam from condensing inside the holes which can make the muffins soggy.
  • Serve the muffins warm.
