Cheddar and Chive Muffins

For December  I am sharing  a savory and cheesy  muffin that  is a perfect complement to the ham  and beans  recipes. And those will be cooking  everywhere around New Year’s Day.

Corn muffins are very popular as a side for beans, but cheddar cheese muffins also are an excellent  choice. So feel free to shake things up in the New Year with a different side for your lucky bowl of legumes.
