Muffin baking day

I found a recipe to make some savory muffins but I thought I would adapt the recipe to make something a little different.   The first batch were cheddar cheese, bacon, onion and thyme, topped with grated cheese and  the second batch are goats cheese, bacon, onion and rosemary, topped with sesame seeds.   Some of these are going to the freezer so I have something to take with me when I am going out and about.
Finally, I made some chocolate muffins and added orange zest and juice, just to make them a little different.  They will go down a treat - but they will probably not last very long.  


  1. they look delicious!!!
    can you please send me the recipe

  2. Oh, they look and sound good!!! Can I please have the recipe, too...?

  3. Those look scrumtious!!! yum, the savory ones would go so good with dinner instead of bread...I would love the recipe as well...have a great day! Jennifer
