"Awesome muffins! I bake these alot because they're simple to make and requested often. I use regular onions and usually skip the walnuts. Also nice that they can be prepared using one bowl. I like making the bite-size mini muffins."

"A family favorite! Even my kids who don't like onions like these muffins. They're great paired with soups and stews, pot roast or pork roast, or even just for snacking."
