I followed the recipe except changed the Canadian bacon to zesty sausage. Everything else the same and they came out soooooo dry. No one in my house will eat them so had to trash the entire batch. I don't recommend this recipe.
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 tried these for a birthday celebration at work, but saved a few for my breakfast. They went so fast and people wanted more so I wound up bringing the rest to work as well. We put some low fat garden herb cream cheese spread on them which was fabulous!
These make a much better biscuit than muffins. When I split them and added a scrambled egg and cheese it was a filing breakfast. By themseves they are really lacking in flavor and I used regular bacon. Maybe double the add in ingredients? I even added jalapeno to the mix. Honestly they make better drop biscuits with some sort of filing like eggs and ham for a completely filling breakfast.
Didn't have scallions, so I used a combo of red onion and leeks, and carmelized them first! I also added some fresh jalapenos for a little kick! Only thing I'll try next time is more cheese...it kind of got lost! Super easy, nice alternative to sweet muffins
Easy to make and they taste great! They are very hearty and relatively healthy, so they will be a great Grab-N-Go breakfast for someone like me who doesn't like to wake up early enough to eat before running to work. It makes a decent sized batch too, though I can't see them lasting long with kids in the house!
