Yield:   12-14 muffins
Cook Time:   20-25 minutes
Suggestion:   Serve as a side bread for any main course. Also great for luncheons and brunches.
If you enjoy the flavors of green onions and cream cheese and are looking for an easy muffin recipe, you might want to give these Cream Cheese & Green Onion Muffins a try. They work nicely
with most any meal, and are a great addition to any luncheon or brunch. These unique muffins have a light and spongy texture and taste great warm topped with butter. Rice cereal squares (crushed into crumbs) are a surprising ingredient used in this cream cheese muffin recipe, adding to the delightful spongy texture.

While many muffins made with cream cheese have a mild sweetness about them, these Cream Cheese & Green Onion muffins are more like a uniquely-flavored bread used to color up a meal or add variety and flavor. The cream cheese gives these muffins a delightful moistness that allows them to heat up in the microwave without drying out or hardening. Serve these muffins as a snack, an appetizer, with breakfast, brunch, luncheons or as a side with any meal



  • 1 3-oz. package cream cheese, softened (allow to sit at room temperature)
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons (1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon) baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup minced green onions with tops
  • 3 cups bite-size crispy rice cereal squares, crushed to 1 cup


Preheat oven to 400° F.

In an electric mixer bowl, add cream cheese, butter and sugar and beat until blended and creamy.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. In another medium mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk and green onions. Add 1/2 of the flour mixture to the butter and cheese mixture and mix until blended. Add egg and milk mixture and mix until blended. Add remaining 1/2 of flour mixture and mix just until thoroughly blended and smooth. Remove mixer bowl and manually stir cereal crumbs into muffin batter.

Grease muffin cups, then fill each cup 2/3 full with muffin batter. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until light golden brown. Serve warm with butter.
