Three cheese and caramelized onion muffins


Truth be told, the fact that yesterday was a public holiday totally threw me off my game. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed the extra weekend-day, but I don’t feel in charge of the coming week at all. So while I try to get my bearings back, we can snack on these cheesy muffins with extra cheese and caramelized onions and more cheese. And cheese. Did I mention the three cheeses? Feta, parmesan and cheddar cheese. Say cheese! 😀



3 onions, sliced

3 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon parmesan cheese

3 tablespoons feta cheese crumbs

Handful of grated cheddar cheese

300 g flour

15 ml baking powder

1 egg

250 ml milk

50 ml butter, melted


1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Lay out wax paper in a muffin pan or use a non-stick spray (this recipe makes six large muffins).

2. Saute the onions in a splash of olive oil. Once the onions turn translucent, add the brown sugar and fry until sticky. Set aside to cool.

3. Sift the flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl. Add the feta, parmesan and cheddar cheese.

4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the butter, milk and egg.

5. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture together with the onions.

6. Place spoonfuls of dough into the muffin pan, top with more cheddar cheese and bake in the oven for 25 minutes.

7. Serve with lots of butter.

  1. I always feel that way after a long weekend. It’s nice to get the time off, but it always throws me off schedule! I’m sure these muffins would set me straight again. I love how they’re so deliciously savory!

  2. I’ve never had anything like these! I can’t wait to try them! Suné, Was there a particular kind of flour you prefer in this recipe? I’m excited to see what these onions are like in a muffin. What a creative recipe—thank you!

  3. Thanks Seema, they really were delicious. I just used normal cake flour (Snowflake), but I’m sure you can experiment with other types as well. 🙂
