These make a much better biscuit than muffins. When I split them and added a scrambled egg and cheese it was a filing breakfast. By themseves they are really lacking in flavor and I used regular bacon. Maybe double the add in ingredients? I even added jalapeno to the mix. Honestly they make better drop biscuits with some sort of filing like eggs and ham for a completely filling breakfast.
Savory Breakfast Muffins
If you're tired of sweet breakfast muffins or just looking for a savory breakfast, try these--you'll love the smoky flavor from the Canadian bacon and the fresh-tasting combination of red bell pepper and scallions.

Didn't have scallions, so I used a combo of red onion and leeks, and carmelized them first! I also added some fresh jalapenos for a little kick! Only thing I'll try next time is more cheese...it kind of got lost! Super easy, nice alternative to sweet muffins
Easy to make and they taste great! They are very hearty and relatively healthy, so they will be a great Grab-N-Go breakfast for someone like me who doesn't like to wake up early enough to eat before running to work. It makes a decent sized batch too, though I can't see them lasting long with kids in the house!
The first time I made these, the dough turned out very dry, resulting in dry and not very good muffins. I'm trying them again with about 2/3-3/4 of the dry ingredients without changing the wet ingredients' measures. The dough looks better, so we'll see how the muffins themselves turn out.
This recipe is a puzzle. The ingredients sound great, but somehow the combination turned out yuck! to me -- leaden and weird. (And no, I did not overmix them.) I made a batch, ate a fresh one ... not too great ... and froze the rest. I thought if I slathered them with butter and homemade preserves, that might do the trick, but no. I'm still on the search for a savory breakfast treat I can make the night or week before, but this ain't it.
