when life gives you failed cheese curds, make muffins

Following Miss Fat’s second attempt to make homemade mozzarella, she was left with about 10 cups of messy, disgusting-looking failed curds and whey.  Despite the fact that it looked like vomit (see above), she was hell bent on not wasting another half gallon of milk.  So Miss Fats thought she’d try to save the situation and adapt a recipe she had sitting around for cottage cheese muffins.  They ended up to be delightful little snacks.  Enjoy the recipe below for all your future cheese making fails.
