Easy Cheesy Garlic Muffins - The perfect savory appetizer to serve with pasta and pizza.

This recipe has become a family favorite!  I originally made them for a Super Bowl party a few years ago and now I make them at least once a week.  Connor always asks me to make them when we have spaghetti and hubby likes them with our Friday night pizza.  And, when we have leftovers, I throw them in our lunches.  I could probably just eat these every night and be a very happy camper.

I call them muffins because they are baked in a muffin pan but they are also knows as garlic bombs and garlic bites.  Whatever you call them, they are delicious!

Dorot Gardens Crushed Garlic

I also have a secret ingredient for making these cheesy garlic bites EASY and full of flavor!  I use Dorot Gardens Crushed Garlic.  Not only is Dorot Gardens easy to use but they bring our recipes to an entirely new level.

I especially love how Dorot Gardens provides the perfect amount of herbs, with no prep or clean up.  I just keep the packs in the freezer and when I need herbs and garlic, I just pop one out and add it right to my pan or bowl.
