Sweet and Savory Onion Walnut Muffins

I thought I would share a recipe that I've made several times over the years. Each and every time that I make these Sweet Onion and Walnut Muffins they're devoured quickly by my family. (recipe at bottom)

The name sounds a bit odd but believe me they have a sweet and savory flavor that goes with about any meal. I even like eating them without a meal too. One of my sons absolutely detest onions and even he enjoys these muffins.

The batter will be similar to cookie dough, fill mini muffin tins about 3/4 full.

The meal pictured below was a wonderful and tasty meal. Doesn't it look delish!? I made the muffins and my daughter Molly, made the main dish. It's called Chicken Penne Pasta. If you would like the recipe, hop on over to her blog 100% Molly Made for it. Let me tell you, it's sure nice having a daughter that loves to cook. It makes cooking in the kitchen a fun experience with such great company!
