As the weather gets cooler spinach comes back and there are so many wonderful uses, but here's one of my new favorites, great for breakfast. lunch or dinner:
Spinach and Cheddar Savory Muffins
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter, melted
1 egg
1 cup whole milk
1 cup chopped fresh or ½ cup chopped frozen spinach (if frozen, thawed, drained and squeezed dry)
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1. Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly grease 12 cup muffin cups, or line with papers.
2. Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a mixing bowl.
3. Stir the melted butter, egg, milk, spinach, and cheddar cheese together in a large mixing bowl until evenly blended. Slowly stir in the flour mixture to form a batter. Scoop into muffin cups using an ice cream scoop, or fill about 2/3 full.
4. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 35 minutes.
