"I've made thee several times now and my family and guests just love them! I use the recipe as a guide but will add different meats if thats what I have on hand. I season evey layer well with garlic, salt & pepper, and herbs. I have also made them gluten free/dairy free and they also get a rave revie. They freeze and reheat very well also."
"My family enjoyed these muffins with salsa. The leftover muffins were easily reheated in the microwave for 30 seconds. I was only able to get a dozen muffins from this recipe."
"These make a nice quick breakfast or healthy snack. I used turkey breakfast sausages for that breakfast flavour. I also used half white flour and half whole wheat. I thought they were too sweet. Probably 2 Tbsp. of sugar would be enough.They freeze and reheat nicely."
"they were okay but they need more of a breakfast flavor, like with bacon not sausage."
"These muffins are fantastic! I'm not a big fan of sausage so I substituted a pound of bacon and added a tablespoon of dried chives. They were super easy to make and had just the right balance of sweet and savory. I can't say yet how well they freeze and reheat, but this recipe is definitely a keeper. They are light, fluffy and much tastier (and cheaper) than the store bought breakfast sandwiches."
