I didn't fill them 3/4 full, so I got a dozen perfectly sized, beautiful muffins. I was disappointed with the flavor, however. The bites with the feta cheese and fresh basil were good. The roasted red peppers really didn't add much except for a pretty color. Maybe the batter could use some salt?

After reviewing the comments here, we retested this recipe to confirm the yield. When filling the cups three-fourths full, as the recipe indicates, we got a yield of 9 muffins. We apologize for the error and it will be updated on the recipe soon.Taste of Home Test Kitchen

These were ok. If you did not get any of the feta or red peppers in your bite the muffin itself was really bland. It was an easy recipe to make.It made more than 7 muffins.

Very good savory muffins. Definately best when served warm.

Delicious! I didn't have enough feta cheese for the full 3/4 cup, so I added mozzarella cheese that I had on hand. Excellent! And the recipe does make about double the stated servings.

Good, easy and quick to whip up! I also got way more then 7 muffins. I actually ended up with 15!! I would go with fresh basil next time.

This is a really excellent savory muffin recipe. But seven muffins? I got an even dozen.
