{Easy, Cheesy Muffins}

Served with salads, soups and stews, spaghetti, lasagna, scrambled eggs and omelets, steak or grilled name it...these muffins go with EVERYTHING!
Basically the texture of an extremely light, fluffy, airy biscuit,  and really fast to make!
My entire family loved them!
I hope you give them a try!

1 & 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 & 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder, optional
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, optional
3 cups shredded cheese
1 cup milk
1 egg
1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) butter, melted

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, xanthan gum, sugar, baking powder, and garlic powder. 
Stir in cheese.
In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, egg and butter.
Add to dry ingredients and mix until well combined. Batter will be thick and sticky.
Spray a muffin pan with cooking spray, and divide batter evenly between 14 muffin cups.
Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until lightly golden brown.
Let rest in muffin pans for 5 minutes, run a table knife around the edges to loosen, and place in on a serving plate!
Best served hot!

-You can use whatever cheese you have or like. I like the mozzarella because it melts well, and makes a stringy, cheesy texture that I love. And cheddar adds great color! But as long as you have 3 cups of some type of cheese, that's all that matters!
This is what I love to use:
1 & 1/4 cup mozzarella
1 & 1/4 cup cheddar
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan
