The simple ingredients are highlighted with the addition of fresh oregano, which you can grow yourself (here).

- 4 green onions, minced
- 2/3 cup cheese curds
- 1/2 cup fresh oregano
- 2 cup all purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 2/3 cup buttermilk
- 2/3 cup vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line muffin tin with liners.
- Whisk together the dry ingredients in one bowl (oregano, flour, baking powder, and salt).
- In a larger bowl, mix together the wet ingredients (buttermilk, oil, and eggs).
- Transfer the dry ingredients into the wet ingredient bowl and mix together until fully combined. Fold in cheese curds and onions.
- Fill each muffin liner 3/4 full with batter. Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown around the edges. Stick a toothpick into the center of the muffin. If it comes out clean, it is done baking; if it has batter on it, leave it in for a few more minutes.
- Let cool completely. Garnish with oregano and serve. Enjoy!
