This recipe is from a Gooseberry Patch cookbook my sister in law gave me called 'Meals In Minutes'. Are you seeing a theme here? I don't especially like cooking but I like feeding my family.
2 1/2c. all-purpose flour
1-1/2t. baking powder
1/2t. baking soda
1t. dried basil
2t. onion minced
1 tomato peeled and chopped
1/4c. butter, melted
3/4c. shreeded cheddar, divided.
Combine first 6 ingredients together; set aside. Mix onion, eggs, tomato, milk, catsup and butter together; add alternately with 1/2 cup cheese to dry mixture. Stir until just moistened; fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups 2/3 full. Sprinkle evenly with remaining cheese; bake at 375 degrees until golden, about 18 minutes. Makes 12.
I forgot to put the cheese on top and we served this with scrambled eggs. We also had my friend Chrissy's kids over for dinner which always changes the results of this.
Madison: I made these before and Maddie LOVED them and wanted two in her lunch the next day. She didn't remember loving them and she hates scrambled eggs so she ate nothing but the apples I cut up and put on the table. I sent a half a muffin in her lunch the next day and she gleefully told me, "I threw out the muffin you put in my lunch." HI! POWER PLAY!
Max: Loves both scrambled eggs and these muffins but refused to eat last night, not even the eggs. He ended up eating two muffins at lunch the next day though.
Chase: Inhaled the eggs, could not be cajoled into a bite of the muffin.
Erin: I'll eat these eggs but F-Off about the muffin lady.
Melissa: Cheap and fast. Just like me.
I'll make it again because I think Maddie will like it eventually.
