Onion Muffins 4.11 In the Clamor and the Clangor
“Order me some coffee, a muffin, and some onion rings.” “Look what I passed onto the next generation.” “Eating habits from Hades.” “Love that DNA!”
1 ¼ cup whole milk
¼ cup sour cream
4 tbsp melted butter
1 cup sweet onion, finely diced
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
¼ cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
½ tsp paprika
½ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp cayenne powder
2 tbsp fresh chives, chopped
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the milk, egg, sour cream, and butter until fully incorporated.
Fold in the onion and cheddar cheese.
Gradually mix in the flour, baking powder, salt, paprika, garlic powder, and cayenne.
Lightly grease a 12-count muffin tray (or two 6 ones!). Pour the muffin batter into each well of the muffin tray. Leave about ½ inch from the top.
Top each muffin well with the fresh chives.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20-22 minutes or until golden brown.
Okay so, I know Rory technically orders a muffin and onion rings separately, but I thought it would be fun to try and combine her order to make onion muffins. I considered topping these muffins with onion rings, but that just seemed too heavy, and I like the freshness that the chives bring. At first, I thought these were going to have too much onion, but I like how much the onion flavor comes through. However, I really like onions, so if you’re not as keen on onions, you could cut back to ¾ or even ½ cup.
I haven’t been talking about my thoughts on the episodes lately, but there is one scene in this episode I want to talk about because I think it’s one of the strongest scenes in the series in terms of acting and character development. Of course, I’m talking about the heartbreaking scene at the end of the episode when Mrs. Kim finds out about Lane’s secret life after she sneaks out of the house to perform at CBGB and doesn’t come home. Obviously, she is rightfully hurt about this discovery, but to kick Lane out of her house is so hard to watch. I think it’s helpful for Lane to gain her independence, but it’s still such a sad scene. And Emily Kuroda (Mrs. Kim) and Keiko Agena (Lane) do such an amazing job acting in this scene.
Happy Cooking in the Hollow!
