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.)

Tips:
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!
