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.

Delicious, with a few changes

I added liquid smoke to get the smoky flavor (would work for the vegetarians). I also used what was on hand- a little bit of turkey bacon and some cold turkey slices. I sprinkled the cheese on top for the last 10 minutes or so. Absolutely delicious! A hit with the family, and veggies in the morning for my toddler!

Tasty but....

For my "Canadian bacon", I used the type similar to ham. Since I don't like red peppers, I used a can of diced chiles, which worked well. Previous reviews had mentioned not tasting the cheese. I used a cup of shredded sharp cheddar, and still did not taste it. If I were given one of these muffins and didn't know there was cheese in it- I never would have guessed it, but still enjoyed them. They were slighty disappointing knowing that there was cheese- and you couldn't taste it. Perhaps I'll try diced extra sharp cheddar next time.

hearty, filling

Needs more salt?

I liked this because I'm not really into sweet for breakfast. I'm a vegetarian, so I replaced the canadian bacon with gouda to try to get that smoky flavor. Totally didn't work- might try veggie bacon next time. I think the recipe could use more salt. Also, since I didn't taste any of the cheese I put in, I'm thinking about putting on top of the muffins before baking next time, instead of mixing it in.

Can I use just All purpose flour or Self-rising flour?

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.

I agree with you. It needed something else. They are yummy but it needed a touch of sweet.

It's a "savory" muffin, so it's not supposed to be sweet.
