It was very bland. :(
I made these with gf bisquick and everyone loved them. Even my husband who hates gf food. I used more ham (bc I had a lot to get rid of) and added a little dry mustard and chopped green onion. Delish!
This is a good "base" recipe, but as-is it is pretty bland. The second time I made this, I increased the cheese to 2 cups because it seemed a little dry. That helped (and made 18 muffins rather than 12), but it still needs something. Next time, I will add some herbs (basil, rosemary, and parsley), and a dash of cayenne and garlic salt. I think that will give it the complexity it seems to be missing.
Yummy :D. I used E-Z Low Fat Bisquick Mix for the Bisquick and old cheddar. This makes a *LOT*. The recipe states 12 standard muffins, I made 6 jumbo "Texas" size muffins and 5 standard sized with a single batch! I hope they freeze well, lol. Mine came out to be substantial, not light and airy, but not dense either. Grand flavor and a hearty snack or salad side. Made for PAC. Spring 2012.
I had Canadian (peameal) bacon leftover so I used that instead of ham. Used a combination of old cheddar and Balderson white 5 year cheddar and a small amount of chopped red onion. Mine were done in about 14 minutes. I plan to freeze most of them for quick breakfasts. Delicious - thanks!
I have used this recipe over a dozen times since it has been posted. Everyone loves it. I used it 2 years in a roll for VBS and the kids gobble it up along with the adult workers. I do add a packet of Goya ham seasoning, just because I like the extra kick. This recipe is great to experiment with also. I have used sausage instead of ham and I have also added scrambles egg to it. It is easy and taste great. They are also good the next day. Just pop them in the microwave and you have a hot breakfast to go. Thank you Gjo Chef for sharing!!! ;)
