    Are these MUFFINS or cupcakes in size?

    I'm a type 2 diabetic what would I use instead of regular flour

    These were really good. I used 1 cup of sharp cheese and about a 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper. I served them with chili and they were perfect. Very quick and easy to make.

    Yummy! I used 5 year old white cheddar and added fresh chives. Next time I will try adding some cooked ham! I think I will try more cayenne as well. Thank you for posting! I will make these again and again :)

    I made these to go with a baked chicken and they were wonderful. We ate them just as well left over as we did when they were fresh out of the oven. The only thing I will do different next time is add a little more cheese, or maybe do a cheese blend.

    I thought these were delicious muffins. The cheese was great. The cayenne pepper added a nice little kick. These would be great with chili or soup!

    Made them just like the recipe. They turned out really good. The only complaint is that they were hard to get out of the liners. Could I spray them a little with cooking spray?

    I added 2 sliced scallions to the batter and I highly recommend it!

    I was looking for a good savory muffin recipe to do some creative playing around with and these were just what I was looking for. Delicious! I appreciate that there was a little sweetness and the texture was beautiful. <br/><br/>I substituted olive oil for the melted butter; then added a few things to give them more depth of flavor: one rounded tablespoon fresh minced chives, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, and a dash of paprika. The aroma was lovely and they were greatly enjoyed! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful recipe. Am looking forward to trying them with some dill and different cheeses. :)


In the words of Tracy Byrd, "I'm from the country & I like it that way"!! On May 1, 2008 my husband and I started a new adventure. We'll be living in a 37 foot RV while our new home is under construction. Its out in the country on a dead end dirt road with lots of trees. For the next 4 months or so, most meals will be cooked on the BBQ and life will be full of challenges! We love spending quality time with our friends & family - especially the grandkids!!

I've participated in many contests & events here on Zaar but this is the first banner that I've posted. My thanks to Dreamgoddess for hosting the contest & SusieD for the banner design! <img src="">
