"These savoury muffins have a delicate taste of fresh green asparagus paired with black pepper and sour cream. I've made these for my daddy's birthday and thought they were great! Very unusual for a muffin, but very tasty! I hope you'll like them, too."

"I add finely diced crisp bacon or ham, sub Parmesan cheese for the cheddar. These muffins make a nice brunch item."
"MMMMM...moist, savory and delicious! Like Peter, I had to use tinned aparagus, which I drained and patted dry; cut into 1/2 inch pieces. Topped with some sharp Cheddar shreds. Enjoyed very much. One caution to others: these muffins are so moist that they wanted to stick to muffin papers; suggest using lightly-sprayed tins or silicone muffin cups. Thanks, Loula, for a keeper! Made for Every Day's a Holiday Tag."
"Lovely recipe, and so quick! I put more asparagus than suggested, baked it in the oven, but I think next time I would salt it a bit before baking. I actually doubled the amount of salt anyway, to 1/2tsp, but could do with a bit more. Used fat-free yogurt in place of sour cream, because this is what I had, and it was very good. I think the amount of oil may be reduced - I put as much as suggested, but will try with less next time. Used comte cheese, because this is what I had. But I would imagine any fairly strong-tasting hard cheese will do. Really delicious! And they looked perfect, too."
"Yum! these are terrific - and I made them with gluten-free flour, adding just a little lightly cooked quinoa. They made a healthy and delicious carbohydrate portion for an informal lunch, along with the lemon breadcrumbed asparagus, glazed carrots and barramundi fish fillets. Heavenly food, fit for a prince. Like Annacia, I also used low-fat sour cream and a little parmesan on top."
"Loula, what a grand creation. these are so yummy! I used just a bit of Parm cheese on top to save a bit of fat as well as fat free sour cream. They still taste fantastic and boy, do they rise! I love the uncommon use of asparagus in this way. Thanks so much for this keeper. Made for PAC, Spring '10"
"We grow asparagus in the farm and I have a lot! I came across this recipe, it looked easy and it proved to be so. These are great, specially for a bunch of people. Everybody is asking me for the recipe, so with your permission, i will share it with my family."
"Yum! I had my mind set on making these and when I found it was a bit early for local asparagus went ahead with a tin that I drained very well and skipped step 1 and they were delicious. Fresh would be better however given the choice. I'm not keen on sweet muffins but these had a great savoury taste and came out nice and fluffy."
"We had a late breakfast this morning and these muffins were a perfect addition. I thought 2 tsps pepper a lot but didn't skimp and was glad I did. I cut my asparagus before cooking which I did very slowly on thestove-top. My double muffins were ready in 25 minutes. Made for PAC, Fall '09."
