, don’t they?…
I normally associate muffins with sweet flavours and enjoy mine with a coffee in the morning, well I found a new idea mixing savoury and sweet and serving them at Apero time or after dinner with the cheeseboard.

The melted crisp lacy cheese escaping from these muffins makes them look irresistible. I’ve made a couple of savoury muffins recipes in the past and really enjoyed them. Cheese and apple is a great combination.
These were really delicious and yes I love those escaping crispy bits of cheese the best!
