Parmesan Herb Muffins

Good served hot with stew. Note: if you don't have buttermilk or sour milk you can make some for this recipe by putting lemon juice (or vinegar but I like lemon juice better) into a measuring cup and then pour in milk to make 1 1/4 cup. Let set for 10 minutes at room temperature before using.

These were easy and very tasty... a good way to use up buttermilk I had left after making another recipe! I used fresh herbs from my garden: Chives, parsley, thyme, oregano and basil. As other reviewers noted, I felt this needed some salt and more parmesan. I'm definitely making another batch soon!

We liked these. Very nice with soup. I made them with half whole wheat and half white flour. The Parmesan taste was subtle. I didn't especially like the sweetness (though the hubby didn't notice it.) If I make these again (and I probably will), I'll eliminate the sugar and increase the cheese to 1/3 of a cup for a stronger Parmesan flavor. Thanks for the recipe!

Made for PAC2007Fall*. Served with "Recipe#39234". This made a nice savory muffin, but could have used some salt, for our taste. I used buttermilk powder and water and fresh parsley from our herb garden. Would make these again for dinner muffins. Thanls *Pixie*.
