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.



READER'S COMMENT:
"When I took my first bite I said to myself "Where's the sweet?" I expected a muffin to be sweet. After eating one, I decided to try part of another with a tablespoon of All Fruit Blueberry (30 Cal/tbs). That did the trick. These could...

After reading a good number of reviews, and making a batch, I had to agree the recipe seemed a bit bland. A second batch was in order, with a few changes. I added a pinch more salt and an equal amount of natural sugar. Canadian bacon gave way to smoked bacon, cooked till almost crisp, the scallions were reduced to 1/2 cup and sautéed with 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion and the chopped red pepper. (This seems to bring out the flavor of the veggies.) The final change was using old cheddar - with the most flavor - and adding 2 teaspoons of Frank's Hot Sauce when adding the moist ingredients to the dry. The final result was an OMG moment; from bland to bold!

We love these and we use them every time we fly to Norway. We have a stop over in Reykjavik and I pull these out of my bag with some Icelandic butter and coffee and they are the perfect travelling breakfast. They are great when we are traveling my car too. I love them at home, but boy do they make a great travelling breakfast.

Title describes these muffins perfectly (and temptingly).

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!

Easy and quick to make; a meal in a muffin that tastes and is healthy!

extremely UNsavory-NO flavor, dry

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?!)

looks pretty, easy
