    chrish574's Note:

    Sometimes when I bite into an oversweet breakfast muffin, I often find myself wishing for a savory version instead. Thanks to the persistence of our wonderful recipe maven Mariko Makino, my wish has come tastily true. This nutritious little treat is a perfect lunchtime snack when fatigue leaves you without the energy to rustle up a sandwich. Eaten with a piece of fruit, you have the perfect, hassle- free small meal. These muffins freeze well too, so can be made ahead of time and either popped into the microwave or defrosted overnight in the fridge. They also make a tasty addition to a lunch box.
