When I took my first bite I said to myself "Where's the sweet?" I expected a muffin to be sweet. After eating one, I decided to try part of another with a tablespoon of All Fruit Blueberry (30 Cal/tbs). That did the trick. These could have been made as a bread instead of muffins, then sliced and toasted, served w/apple butter or jam.
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.

Loved this muffin. Truly savory and not just a "bald cupcake!" I filled my standard-sized muffin tins full, but still need to use 18 muffin cups. I thought they were a nice sized serving that way anyway.
Actually, the "American" Canadian bacon is fully cooked, and tastes like ham.. Canadian "Back Bacon", or "Pea Meal" Bacon is not; and it doesn't taste like ham. I remember the first time I found "Canadian Bacon" in the grocery store when I first moved to the US from Canada.. and how *disappointed* I was to discover the taste was not at all the same!
Canadian Bacon is just back bacon, and even being from Canada I never knew that's what people called it until recently...
As is often the case with foreign recipes some explanation of ingredients would help. According to Wikipedia:
Canadian bacon, a US name for two different pork products - back bacon and a smoked ham (Also a comedy film and mountain in Washington)
Which of the two products was used in this recipe?
btw It's unfortunate that a rating is required to post a query.
