Such a savory muffin is great to serve for a brunch or as the side of a bowl of soup on a cool day. They have a wonderful oniony flavor.—Patty Albright, Tooele, Utah


  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon plus 1/4 cup vegetable oil, divided
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup minced chives
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk


  1. In a small skillet, saute onion in 1 teaspoon oil until tender. Remove from the heat; set aside. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. Stir in chives. Combine the egg, buttermilk, sauteed onions and remaining oil; stir into flour mixture just until moistened.
  2. Fill greased miniature muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 375° for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Serve warm.
