Great muffins. I did some modifications. I replaced the oil with applesauce and cut the sugar in half. Also used chopped ham on hand instead of bacon. Delcious savory muffins. A definite keeper. Read More

Yanno I wasn't too impressed by these as-written but I'm sure they could be great with a few mods. I'm thinking if I do these again and I'm sure I will I'll use more meat and substitute bacon drippings or lard for the butter. The problem as it were is that the batter is delicious but just tastes like dough and the bacon and corn pieces are few and far between. I also second the reviewer who said these could be delicious with some green onions which I plan to add next time. Read More

These are excellent!!! Mine turned out great--not too dry at all. The only deviation from the original recipe was that I didn't have any wheat germ to add. I just substituted extra flour for it. I also added a handful of shredded Italian blend cheese (though I don't think this would effect the moistness any). I baked mine in a mini-muffin pan (for the same amount of time) for our church's after-service Easter Brunch--I can't wait to share them!!! (of course I had to test 1 or 2--OK maybe 3 first!)

My fiance' and I loved this! I substituted turkey bacon and added some cheddar cheese....yummy! I didn't have any wheat germ on hand I am wondering how that effects the recipe? Anyone? Read More

I found this recipe after whining about all breakfast foods being sweet. I substituted turkey bacon instead of regular bacon used 2 packets of Splenda instead of regular sugar and swapped out 1 of the cups of flour with whole wheat flour. I also added onions (because I love them). All in all I'm very happy with the result and will make again (: Read More

Thanks for sharing a nice recipe. These were great. I even froze some of them for a quick on the go "breakfast". I can pop one in the microwave for 20 seconds or so and run out the door with it! I added organic flax seed to mine so they were a bit more dense but it gave them a really nice texture as well. They're nice with butter and easy to feed to small children. Certainly worth a try. I think this recipe has great potential for personalizing with your favorites grains or even nuts etc. Read More

The adults loved this recipe at our Christmas Brunch. It was great and as noted not a sweet muffin. It worked well with the many sweet coffe cakes we had. Read More

My 5 year old says "these are so yummy I just can't stop eating them!" I added cheddar cheese but otherwise stuck to the recipe. I think I will use maple syrup and/or bacon drippings for some more flavor next time. I did both regular muffin size and mini-muffins kids loved the little ones since they are so easy to eat with no mess. Read More

This is a great quick savory muffin recipe that could be varied quite easily. Also a great side dish for soup. I did not use salt and used corn kernels instead of creamed corn ( because i didn t have in cupboard). I also added 1/4 cup of grated cheese which works well. Read More
