Italian Herb Muffins

My husband enjoys garlic bread with spaghetti. While preparing spaghetti for dinner one day, I realized I was out of bread and thought, “Why not make an herb muffin instead?” I created with this recipe, and it was a hit. —Cyndee Page, Reno, Nevada

    Really almost excellent - just a little too dry for me.
