Onion Cheddar Muffin Recipe

It has been too long since I posted to my Vintage Recipe Project.

 This Onion Cheddar Muffin recipe comes from my mother in-law. A few years ago I scanned all her old family recipes that she has saved over the years from her mother and grandmother in a recipe card box. 

I love old vintage recipes. I have a large collection of vintage cookbooks,  church booklets and recipe boxes.  Besides the recipe cards that I scanned from my mother in-laws family she also handed down to me all the recipe booklets and church cookbooks that her mother and grandmother owned.

Vintage Family Recipe

 

When I am making some of these old recipes I usually need to make some changes. This one didn’t need to be adapted at all but I did add some onion powder to it because I wanted to layer the onion flavor. It turned out great. I also added some chopped onion and a bit of cheddar cheese to the top of each muffin before it went in the oven. So I guess I did adapt it a little bit.

Onion Cheddar Muffins

 

This recipe makes 12 muffins even though the original recipe states it will make 14-16 muffins. Muffin tins were much smaller back in the day. I happen to have one and the muffins wells are about 3/4 the size of muffin wells now.
