3-cheese Mini Corn Muffins

Based on the corn muffins a la Kenny Rogers in the archive, these mini muffins are made tastier with the addition of three different kinds of cheese and chopped parsley. I used jalapeño cheddar (found at S&R), feta and mozzarella. Hot cheddar, salty feta and gooey mozzarella. You can use some other cheese combination if you want to create a different contrast of flavors.

These mini muffins are great for breakfast, they can be packed into lunchboxes or carried to picnics. Since they’re best while the cheeses are soft, if you decide to pack and carry them, keep them in an insulated container to allow them to stay warm.
