I thought these were a little bland. I want to try them again but next time I will sub stone ground cornmeal for 1/2 the whole wheat and use canned green chiles (medium not mild) in place of the red pepper. I also think you need to use extra sharp cheddar to get any taste of cheese in them. I think it's worth playing with these because they make such a great quick breakfast, especially paired with the mini quiches also in this issue.
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.

I think these have the potential to be Awesome! They were a little bland. However, recipes can always be adjusted. I think next time I will saute my bacon, onion, and bell peppers in the olive oil and butter first. I will also add some fresh garlic and do half the cheese in pepper jack. I think this will make them even better!!
I made these substitutions because I didn't have all the ingredients: 1 cup each of rice, plain & wholewheat flour, regular bacon*, sweet marinated pepper strips* (from a jar), leeks*, extra fresh pepper. It is a keeper! The hardest part was waiting the 5 minutes to cool them!
* cut up really, really small for a better flavor infusion
