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!
