These were very good but I agree that it needs more green onion (which surprises me with one of your recipes Kitz) All in all though a very nice muffin. I used sharp cheddar cheese because I could not find old cheddar. Thanks Kitz

These were ok. I found the quantity of pepper a little overpowering and would cut back on that. Added more onions,3, and still could of used more
