For a change of pace from sweet muffins, I like to make these. They're loaded with lots of flavor and perfect for mornings when you need to eat on the run. —Janne Rowe, Wichita, Kansas

"My husband did not like these as much. He said they were too "whole grainy". He really liked the topping. I had to use sausage instead of bacon ( I used 1/4 of a sausage log). Now my 2 y/o nephew liked them just fine."

"These are light, delicious muffins, that are quick to make. I used only all-purpose flour for mine and I folded the cream cheese/ bacon filling into the batter, instead of putting it on top. I used 6 oz.(1/2 pkg) of bacon in mine. Sausage would be a good substitute. Good muffin base to add to!"

"I baked these this morning for my family, which includes teenagers. No one in my family liked them. The whole wheat flour makes them a little too dense and muted the flavor of the bacon and cheese. The muffins are bland, so if that is what you are going for, I guess this would be a good recipe for you."
