"I thought these were pretty good, but my husband didn't care for them, and he will eat almost anything. My 14 year old son ate one with dinner, but said it was just okay. I will also add the batter was really, really dry so I added a little more milk, and they took a lot longer to cook than the recipe called for. The toothpick was clean but you could just tell they weren't done, so I kept baking them and checking every couple minutes. I bet they took about 24 minutes! The texture was very different, but possibly because I'm not used to a savory muffin and was expecting something different. The texture on mine didn't look like the one in the picture, mine was denser and looked more like a muffin and was very moist."

"yes, 1/3 cup of buttermilk added to wet ingredients makes the batter much easier to work with and gives an awesome extra kick!"

"Is there something missing in this recipe, I found the batter to be very dry, I added some milk as most of my recipes call for, will let you know how they turned out."
