MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 29, 2012

Absolutely delicious! I served them alongside a pork roast last weekend, and we all gobbled them up. Then my daughter asked me to bake another dozen for her to take to her play rehearsal. The only trouble is that the chives in my garden are all done now and I can't grow them indoors (not enough natural light), so I'll have to buy fresh chives if I want to make these during the fall and winter. I used extra-sharp cheddar cheese, by the way.

These muffins were delicious! I followed the recipe exactly this time, but next time I may try to use less sugar and add sharp cheddar cheese. A wonderful way to use the chives growing in my herb garden. Thanks!
