Mexican Cheese Muffins for Muffin Mondays

Each week, I look through books and Internet sites to decide which muffin, I am going to make, this week.  I had quite a few choices but this cheese won out.  The actual recipe came from Southern Food and was called Ham and Cheddar Muffins - not for me.  Ham is forbidden when one is kosher but I had no problem eliminating it and making a highly flavored cheese muffin.  Actually, I did not use cheddar, called for,  but I used the four cheese Mexican mix, which is now being sold locally and is scrumptious.

Mexican Cheese Muffins


1 1/4 cups gluten-free flour mixture
1/4 cup cornmeal
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 scallion, sliced thin
1/2 cup 4 cheese Mexican mix or any cheese of your liking
1 egg
1/4 cup oil


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Spray 12 muffin cups with olive oil.
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.  Mix only until dry ingredients are moistened.  
Put batter into muffin cups about 3/4 the way up the cup.
Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.

You know, we love muffins, in this family, and all the ones, I have made here have been enjoyed to the utmost.  Yet, I think, we liked this one even more than the delicious apple, cinnamon and others. 



  1. I probably would have thrown in turkey bacon instead of ham anyway!

  2. These muffins sound really delicious. I think they would be wonderful with soup or chili!

  3. Yum! These sound like the perfect accompaniment for a big bowl of chili. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Wouldn't these be great with a salad? Love this recipe!

  5. What delicious cheesy muffins Chaya! I was thinking of making some tomorrow! Now I will for sure.

  6. These sound wonderful - I love the idea of making them with Mexican cheese! They would be so good with so many things. Thank you for sharing them.

  7. Corn muffins/bread are one of my favorites. Adding cheese is a bonus!

  8. Those look incredibly yummy!


  9. Yum! These muffins have one of my favorite food combos--green onion and cheese. Love that! (I'd skip the ham too. Not a fan.) Thanks for linking!

  10. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe on Allergy-Free Wednesdays! Be sure to check back next week for reader favorites and hostess picks.

    Be Well,
