I baked a batch to try for Sunday Brunch. I am not a vegetarian, but my daughter is, so I left out the bacon and added extra cheese and some diced walnuts. They turned out very good, but need a little extra flavor. We decided next time to add a little garlic to the batter, and since my husband is from New Mexico, I will be adding chiles instead of (or in addition to) bell peppers! I also substituted the regular flour with soy flour, which would lower the carbs somewhat. Somehow my batter made 18 muffins, 6 more than the recipe said it would. Maybe I made them smaller, but they turned out perfect. These muffins have real potential. Try them!

I was slightly disappointed by these. Don't get me wrong, they weren't horrible or anything, but I guess I was expecting them to taste better because the ingredients that went into them were so good. They just seemed a little bland, like they were missing something. And I couldn't even taste the cheese, so it seems like putting it in is just a waste of calories. I think next time I will add 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese in addition to the cheddar. Also, I might try them with some jalapeno jelly. The texture was great, however.
