The cottage cheese really gave these muffins a wonderful moist texture! Although next time I think I will omit the thyme but we really enjoyed this recipe!

Way too much flour. I substituted some of the flour for more cornmeal and it was delish! I also used sour cream instead of the cottage cheese.

These were OK. I didn't find them overly good or bad.

Like others, I feel this could use more flavor. I did throw in some garlic powder which helped but it's still not as savory as I would like. Great idea though. Love the use of cottage cheese.
