This recipe came from a lady who worked in the Bell Canada cafeteria for many years. They were a favourite coffee break snack for most employees.

I made these to go with a baked chicken and they were wonderful. We ate them just as well left over as we did when they were fresh out of the oven. The only thing I will do different next time is add a little more cheese, or maybe do a cheese blend.

I love this recipe. I accidentally omitted the sugar and added an extra pinch or two of salt, and they tasted savory and delicious. Thanks for this simple crowd pleaser!:)

I have made these a couple of times now and find them really versatile. One time I added a couple of dessert spoons of corn relish and a little chopped ham. The next time I made them, I used the relish again, but also pushed a small teaspoon of cream cheese into the centre of each muffin before cooking. Yum!
