  1. I like the idea of this "muffin" and i usually make most recipes exactly as written but this one just Screamed for graded cheddar on top (big plus) AND that help make them a little browner while cooking. I didn't put mine in muffin pans i just scooped them onto a baking tray like scones. - Read more ...
  2. This is a great concept and a good basic recipe to fiddle with. I did not use olives instead I used some finely diced green pepper and celery. I also added about 1/4 cup parmesan cheese. I also used whole wheat flour. They came out really good. I can't help but think that there's SOMETHING - Read more ...
  3. These recipe sounded interesting so I thought I would try it. Except that I knew from the ingredients list I would have to "tweak" it quite a bit if anyone in my family was even going to consider eating these (definitely not intended to disparage either the recipe or the contributor just my own family's - Read more ...
  4. I love tuna sandwiches, but I couldn't eat these muffins. I don't know if I did something wrong, but the muffins came out soggy, and if I had cooked them longer they would have been overcooked. I really wanted to like these, but they did not taste good.
  5. I love these! My daughter liked them as well. I substituted whole wheat flour for white and used white onions instead of green. I don't like olives so I added celery instead so they were not salty at all. These will definatly be a keeper! Thanks!
  6. I really don't like tuna but my husband loves it so i decided to try this recipe. He wasn't crazy about the muffins-he ate three of them because he was hungry but said it didnt think much of them. I was scared to even try them but they actually werent as disgusting as I thought. - Read more ...
  7. This is just for my family it appears that most people like these.
  8. A little salty but if you like tuna you will like these muffins. I doubled the recipe and got just 12 regular sized muffins.
  9. These muffins are great! I take them to work every day for lunch.
