I may start this as a new feature on this blog, because I am always looking for good, weeknight-friendly recipes. But anyway, we tried PW's Cheese Muffins last night, and they were GREAT! On a tip from my friend Barbara, I added a tiny bit of garlic powder to them. That was tasty and added a little zing to the cheese.
I happened to be (also on the spur of the moment) deviating from my planned menu, so we were having Italian Stuffed Chicken Breasts for dinner (I can't get enough of these freezer meals!). I checked and discovered that the chicken and the muffins bake at the same temperature for (basically) the same amount of time. Woohoo! I decided to make them, then noticed I only had half as much cheese as was called for. So I decided to halve the recipe, and that worked fine!
Half the recipe made exactly five muffins. If you have extra muffin tin "holes", you can fill them with water to help make sure the surrounding muffins bake evenly. And in some recipes, if you need "half" an egg, you can just throw the whole egg in. But this is baking, where you have to be at least a little careful (even with quick breads like muffins), so I just decided to beat one egg in a measuring cup and use half of it in the recipe. That seemed to work fine.
The muffins were a hit with both of us, and for myself I also had wilted spinach (hubs had regular salad, since he won't eat spinach unless it's been cooked to death at least twice). It was a nicely rounded spring or fall menu that was truly on the table in 30 minutes! I was very pleased with that feature, as well.
Hope you guys have a great Wednesday!
