Cheddar Cornbread Muffins
Gather your mis en place; get together all of the equipment needed for the recipe and gather your ingredients.
Preheat oven to 375 F. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.
Grate the cheese using a grater. Reserve about 1⁄2 cup for topping the muffins.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter and allow it to cool slightly.
Measure the milk and crack an egg into a bowl.
Remove the green leaves from the sage and chop finely.
Measure out the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt and sugar. Whisk together until combined. Add the milk, egg, and butter. Stir just until all the flour is incorporated.
Fold in the sage and grated cheese, except for the ½ cup.
Divide batter into the muffin tin and top with the remaining cheese.
Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
