Beer Cheez-It Muffins

Thursday, April 11, 2013

If it were up to me, Cheez-Its would be a food group all on their own.  There is no better snack than a box of Cheez-Its (Cheetos are a close second).  That said, you need to make these muffins ASAP!

I was in need of a quick bread last weekend and decided to make some easy beer cheese muffins.  I starting thinking  about what else I could add to them to give them a little more pizzazz.  Aha! Cheez-Its!  I crushed up some Cheez-Its and baked them right on top of the muffins for a nice crunch.

These were ridiculously good, especially slathered in honey butter.  This made 18 regular sized muffins.  I am going to make mini muffins next time.   These muffins are the perfect accompaniment to a bowl of chili or soup.  Give these a try when you need something quick and delicious!

  1. Wow, very different! I'll have to give these a try. I'm sure my fiance will love them, as he is a Cheez-ItAholic!

  2. How incredibly creative! Must try these!

  3. YUM!!! These sound amazing, and I don't think I've seen a recipe quite like this before! We will look forward to trying these out someday soon!!

  4. Is "All Purpose Baking Mix" like Bisquik?

  5. Love this ... and I vote for making Cheez-its and Cheetos a food group. Too funny.

  6. Okay - love the thought of making these two items their own food group but probably the minority on this next thought...I do not like the taste of beer - at all. Can I substitute another liquid for the beer or do you think I need the yeast in the beer to help the texture of the rolls?
