We love cilantro and cook with it a lot. I also bake with it. These sweet and salty muffins taste amazingly good!!

Top Review by Kathy

We enjoyed these savory muffins. They reminded me a bit of cornbread muffins, and were a nice addition to breakfast. The bacon, cilantro, and cheddar make for a colorful muffin. I thought they needed a little something, so we tried a dab of butter and then also tried a drizzle of maple syrup -- yum!
