  • In a large bowl, stir together the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, garlic powder, and onion powder. In a separate bowl, mix together the melted margarine, egg substitute, and buttermilk. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and mix until just blended. Fold in the crumbled patties and Parmesan cheese. Spoon into the prepared muffin cups.

  • Bake for 8 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top springs back when lightly touched. Cool in muffin tins on a wire rack.

These muffins turned out beautifully. They were so tasty. What I had on hand dictated my substitutions: regular butter for reduced calorie margarine 2 real eggs for 1/2 C egg substitute packaged real bacon bits for meatless breakfast patties and cheddar for Parmesan. I was a little freer with the cheddar than the amount in the recipe too. These were a tasty companion to this site's "Creamy Corn Soup". Thanks. Read More

I was intrigued by this recipe especially since no one else had reviewed it.:) The one major alteration I made was using whole wheat flour instead of white. The only other changes were using real chopped onion instead of powder( didn't have any powder) and some extra seasonings. These tasted pretty good. Next time I am going to add some broccoli and perhaps some lowfat cheese to the mix instead of parmesan. Read More

This is my favorite muffin recipe tho I do make some substitutions depending on what I have on hand: whole wheat flour for all-purpose 2 eggs or 6T mayonnaise for the egg substitute 1/4 cup of Bac-O's or bacon bits for each patty and butter for the margarine as I cannot stand the thought of margarine anymore after reading a natural health article that pointed out it is 'one molecule away from plastic'. It doesn't rise as much with the whole wheat flour so I also fill the cups higher than I would normally which usually only gives me 8 muffins. I also tried greasing the tins with coconut oil this time instead of Pam olive oil spray or Crisco...and they taste better! One other thing...I have a small hot oven but I still needed to go 14 minutes in baking them probably because of the changes I made. Read More

Wow. These were amazing. Substitutions: Yogurt instead of buttermilk "Imitation meatloaf" instead of sausage (recipe on this site); 2 tbsp canola oil and some applesauce instead of butter. Also added 1/4 cup finely grated carrot and left out the cheese. I will make this again for sure. Read More

Woderful savory muffin. We are not vegeterians but this recipe is easily adapted using crumbled sausage as I did. This is an easy meal on the go packed with protein and oats. We served this with scrambled eggs and they were perfect. Read More

We loved these! My husband and I wanted something other than standard breakfast fare and these were perfect. The only changes I made were to use plain soy yogurt instead of buttermilk egg whites instead of egg substitute and crumbled turkey bacon instead of the meatless patties. I also left out the cheese. They baked up nice and fluffy and had just the right amount of seasoning. Thanks for the great new addition to our breakfast rotation! Read More
