Cornbread Muffins with Jarlsberg Cheese

These cornbread muffins with Jarlsburg cheese are a luxurious side dish that goes with everything – savory or sweet.

Chef George Duran, host of TLC’s “Ultimate Cake Off” and Food Network’s “Ham on the Street,” says we need to look for a cheese that won’t overpower other flavors; choose a mild, nutty cheese like Jarlsberg, best known for its classic wedge but also available sliced.

The Jarlsberg cheese in these cornbread muffins make them the perfect accompaniment to soups, stews, and any dinner menu.

They are also wonderful on any buffet or appetizer table.

  3. Cut cheese into cubes and press down into mixture. Bake in center of oven about 15 minutes.
