This recipe, best made with a cheese like cheddar or something solid and grateworthy, can also be adapted by adding such items as bacon, diced ham, sauteed onions, scallions, or herbs, or any combination. These are perfect as either a breakfast muffin or as a side dish with your dinner (make them small for this purpose). We made tried them with some diced apples tossed with sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon, with sharp cheddar - simply wonderful.
Serve with room temperature butter.
