I also found this recipe to be dry. They were OK if you ate them warm [straight from the oven or microwaved a few seconds] with butter.

This sounds delicious, I am going to make them for my coffee group that meets every morning.

I think these would be perfect for my grandchildren on school mornings.

Sound delicious cantremember0201 9385952! Great tip. -Editors of RecipeLion

sounds good i think i would split them and add ham or sauage and a fried egg.

I made these for breakfast and they turned out perfect. I used the grease from the cooked bacon and enough butter to make up the 1/4 c of melted butter. They were done after 20 minutes and a big hit with the teenage daughter.

In deference to the earlier comment, I added 2 tbs of milk to the final batter after mixing in the cheese. The consistancy was perfect, and they baked up just fine. These are more like biscuits, than muffins, and are great with butter or jelly. I think I may have added too much baking powder because they were a little bitter. You may want to cut back 1 tsp of baking powder and add a tsp of sugar.

I would not make this ever again. I followed the recipe exactly and the muffin batter was very thick like glue. When they were baked they tasted like raw flour and were very dry. I think they need less flour and more liquid. Please recheck the online recipe!

When do I add the eggs?
