  4. Pour into the muffin cups and cook for 20 minutes, then quickly take them out of the oven and put a little cheese and a sprinkling of Worcestershire sauce on each one. Put them back in the oven for another 5 minutes, then put the muffins on a baking sheet to cool. Eat them while they are still warm but not hot.
