We made this for Christmas brunch. They were great reheated (made them one day ahead). Wonderful with cream cheese! We will definitely make them again.

The basic recipe is good. I just "tweaked" it a little for my family. I made the muffins a little spicier aby dding abour 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder and about 1 teaspoon of hot sauce. I also used 4 pieces of crumbled bacon rather than canadian bacon. I've also used both red and green peppers and substituted red onion or vidalia onion for the scallions.

we used cooked bacon instead of canadian, and substituted diced green chilis for the pepper. then, we paired these with the mini quiches. we opened the muffins and put the quiches in the middle. great stuff.
