Recipe by Jellyqueen

This recipe came from and old Southern Living cookbook. Edited to add: Don't be fooled by the name of these muffings...they are actually more of a roll than a muffin.

Way different than I expected (not in a bad way, lol..)...very tasty with soup and the directions were simple to follow.
