Mini Muffin Snackers

When I started this blog over a year ago for our son's off-campus living adventure, I featured one of his favorite snacks as my second post. Not surprisingly, it went unnoticed! The format, layout and timing was all wrong for this great little, quick-fix appetizer!

So, I had to do it justice and re-post it properly. These little bites are tangy, cheesy, salty, and way-too-easy on the taste buds! You gotta try these!

(Recipe proportioned for approx 12 muffin halves.)

1. Wolferman's Mini English Muffins are the best vehicle and size for this recipe, but if not available, you may need to use a biscuit cutter or go with a regular size muffin.
2.Make cheese mixture ahead of time and assemble as needed!
