"I recall preparing these muffins more than one time! I omitted the sugar. I also used 1 tsp. salt and if dried oregano isn't available, I've used Italian seasoning instead. I recall using at least 1/3 cup to 1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted and 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, DIVIDED. These muffins went over well when I contributed them for our coffee hour at our chapel or simply just to share them with friends! delowenstein"

"It was very nice and yummy to have them while warm. I just added chilli flakes too as a seasoning to give an extra punch!!"
