These muffins were really yummy! I have made them with swiss and a mild cheddar and they are great both ways. The whole family loved them. Thanks for the great recipe!

These were the best muffins ever! I ate them for breakfast and gave some to the neighbors. They had this light, delicate texture, with a wonderful cheesey flavor. I will make a point of serving these at brunches and teas. I did substitute a Tbsp flax-seed for the egg and add some fresh thyme leaves from the garden.

Outstanding is too mild a word to describe these fantastic muffins!!! Totally delicious, Jo! I did add a leetle California Spices to the batter. Otherwise, followed it to the "T". What possibilities with different cheeses and different additions. THANK YOU for posting!! Made for Muffin Love in Cooking Photos
