Top Review by JenSmith
I made these on Father's Day to accompany our dinner. Unfortunately, these muffins didn't pass the mustard...I tried them the next day, cold, to see if that would improve the taste, but they were still very bland. My family couldn't taste that good cheddar zip or the pepper at all. I'm sorry, but I will definitely not be making these again. They do get an extra star for being easy and looking nice, though.
