Muffin Monday & Crusty Cheese and Onion muffins
Crusty Cheese and Onion Muffins are the perfect savory muffins with a crusty cheesy top, carmelised onions and so soft when you bite into them! A perfect breakfast and lunchbox option! 
  1. Place the all purpose flour in a small bowl and rub in the butter, mix in just enough water to bind ingredients. Press dough into a ball, cover, freeze about 30 minutes or until firm
  2. Preheat the oven to 200C . Grease a 6 hole (3/4 cup deep) muffin tray.
  3. Heat oil in a frying pan, add onion, cook, stirring, until soft and lightly brown. Set aside to cool.
  4. Sift self raising and extra flour into a large bowl, stir in half the onion, half the cheese and all of the chives, then egg, buttermilk and extra oil.
  5. Spoon mixture into prepared tray. Grate frozen dough into a small bowl, quickly mix in remaining onion and cheese. Sprinkle over muffins.
  6. Bake muffins for about 25 minutes. Serve warm with chive butter ( I served them with garlic butter, my latest craze… its strange how I have come from a garlic hater to a garlic lover :P)
Recipe Notes

Note: Instead of self raising floor I used 1 cup whole wheat flour, 3/4 cup maida and 1 teaspoon baking powder
