I LOVE this recipe and make it over and over. I substitute fried bacon (crumbled) for the Canadian bacon, and add green peppers when I have them, but am true to the rest of the recipe. I may experiment with additional vegetables, but NEVER the dry and basic wet ingredients (buttermilk/egg/olive oil; I do use 20/80 not 100% butter)! I like to keep back-up muffins in the freezer, then microwave them and serve with just a bit of Farmers 20/80. My friends love them as well!
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.

the recipe is really easy and it takes about 40 min from prep time to baking. I was really excited when they came out because it was really pretty, but I took a bite and it is so gross. it is dry, no flavor (needs more herbs, salt, and cheese). extremely disappointed as all the ingredients are expensive (now what do I do with a bag of whole wheat flour?!)
I made these the other week and basically followed the recipe to the T (except added more cheese and used smoked bacon instead of Canadian bacon - because I couldn't get it). I love these muffins, so yummy and filling and can have it on the go. Don't know how I survived without them!!!
I wasn't expecting sweet but I sure wasn't expecting it to taste like sawdust either. I won't try these again.
I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THE DRY TO WET INGREDIENTS WAS OFF ..3 CUPS OF FLOUR WAS TOO MUCH WITH THE SMALL AMOUNT OF WET...
ADD 2 CUPS OR MORE OF CHEESE...NO GET ANOTHER RECIPE!!
