Cheese Scallion Muffins

Cheesy muffins.  Yum. 

These came out perfect and were enjoyed by all. I cut the oil a bit from the original recipe and next time I would add a bit more salt but otherwise they were perfect. 

Cheese and Scallion Muffins
Adapted from LimeCake

1 1/2 cups flour
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated (8 oz)
1/2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 scallions, sliced
1 egg
1 cup milk
2 tbsp. olive oil

Spray muffin tray with cooking spray.  In a large mixing bowl, gently toss cheese, flour, baking powder, salt, paprika and scallions.  In a medium bowl, whisk egg, milk and oil.  Add wet ingredients to dry and stir gently to mix until just combined and no flour patches remain. Don't overmix.

Divide among muffin cups and bake for 15 - 20 minutes or until golden and lightly springy.
