I thought these were okay, lacked flavour a little though even though I used a flavoured cottage cheese...ham was missing from the ingredients but in the method so I missed that when Making but this would have helped the flavour I'm sure.

After reading the recipe I realized that, although it isn't in the ingredient list, the directions call for including ham, so I took it upon myself to add a half cup of finely diced baked ham, & they turned out just fine ~ These muffins made for a great breakfast, but since I wasn't able to zmail the chef about the ham, well . . .
