Cheese-Herb Muffins with Green Onion

Best served warm.

Here is a delicious, light, savoury muffin that’s filled with sharp cheese, green onions, parsley, and dill.

The question now was: What could I add to give it nutrition and flavour?  For my second experiment, my choices were cauliflower, cheese, fresh dill, and olives.  The result? A delicious and completely new eating experience!
