Cheese Muffins

I got this recipe from Addictive Allen's and they got it from Pioneer Woman, so I really should have known that it would be SO good. They whipped up really fast. I had enough time to boil the noodles and heat up the sauce for spaghetti while they baked. I made them last night and just finished the last one (heated up) this afternoon. It only made 12, but somehow we didn't devour every one of them last night. Must have been that yummy spaghetti...

1 1/2 cups Flour
1 1/2 Tablespoons Sugar
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
3 cups Cheese (Any kind works: colby-jack, cheddar, mozzarella, etc)
1 cup Milk
1 Egg
1/4 cup Melted Butter

It doesn't even matter how you put these ingredients together. Just mix and spoon into muffin tins. Yes, it is THREE cups of cheese.
(The official directions are to whisk dry ingredients, stir in cheese(s), then in a separate bowl whisk egg, milk, and melted butter before mixing them into the dry ingredients. )
I just added everything to one bowl and mixed and added the cheese last. They worked beautifully. It will seem as though there is too much cheese, but is there really such a thing as too much cheese????
Bake in greased muffin tins at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.
These muffins are airy and cheesy and delightful! They taste best when the cheese on the inside is melty enough to be a little stringy when you take a bite.
Also, the recipe says it makes 12, but I think it could easily make 15 or so.
Sorry most of my recipes are muffins. I really like them and so do my kids. =)
