Cheddar and Chives Muffins are great to add to your breakfast / brunch menu and they are just as delicious for lunch, a snack or a tea time savory treat.

I was craving for something cheesy, with a chive flavor as well, for nearly 2 weeks. With all the makeovers going on in just about every room of our house, time is a bit limited these days, so I put my cravings last on the list.

Which is a bit stupid, if only I thought of baking muffins first. These are prepped, baked and served in under 20 minutes.

One morning I caved and baked a batch of these family favorite Muffins. Perfect !

We enjoyed them with a cup of coffee, whilst discussing the wall decor we wanted in the hallway (which is just about done!)

And as with most savory muffins, I served these Cheddar and Chives Muffins hot, with only Butter – slathered with butter really ! There are not much more delicious than, soft, warm, dripping with butter Muffins.

I also like to sprinkle over some additional cheese and chives over the freshly baked muffins.  Not only because it looks great, but also to add more flavor. And for cheese lovers like us, no dish can ever have enough cheese.

Another one of my savory muffins we love are these Pesto Tomato and Cheese Muffins – absolutely delicious at tea time ! And they look as good as they taste !
