YIELD: Makes 8 muffins


3/4 cup low-fat milk
4 T butter melted
2 eggs
1/4 cup honey
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. chopped chives
3/4 cup shredded Gruyere cheese + 1/4 cup for sprinkling on top of muffins


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Line 8 cups of a muffin tin with paper liners (or coat with non-stick cooking spray).

Whisk together the milk, butter, eggs, and honey in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the flour, baking powder, salt, chives, and cheese, setting aside 1/4 cup of Gruyere for sprinkling on top of muffins.

Divide the batter evenly among the cups, filling them three-quarters full.

Bake muffins for 20-25 minutes, until golden on top and remove from oven. Sprinkle remaining Gruyere cheese over tops.

Turn oven to broil and broil muffins for another 2-3 minutes until cheese is melted and lightly browned.
