Twelve delicious muffins on the table this morning and along with the sausage and very small clementines everyone enjoyed a leisurely breakfast. Might try sarikat's suggestion next time around. TFS

This recipe is fantastic! The only changes I made were to sub almonds for walnuts, and to add 1.5 cups diced precooked chicken breast. They really do taste like stuffing! Also with the addition of chicken I got 18 muffins, not 12. I will be making this recipe, and variations of it, many many times!
