Italian herb & cheddar muffins...

i love these muffins with everything.  i made BBQ pork chops this week & served them with that, but with soup season on the horizon, I'm sure i will be making them a ton!  & best of all... they are so super easy!!!!

{adapted from Figs Cheese Muffins}

1 TBSP baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups graded mild cheddar cheese
1 cup whole milk

1/2 stick butter, melted

In a medium bowl combine all of the dry ingredients.  Mix together & add cheese.  Mix again.

In a small bowl mix- butter, milk & the egg.  Beat together & pour into dry mixture.  Mix with a spoon just until combined.  

Spoon into greased muffin tins & bake @ 20-25 minutes.  Remove from oven & top with garlic herb butter.
