Not found a single person yet who doesn't like these muffins... even better with a few chopped up rashers of bacon in them!

I made a recipe quite similar to this a couple of weeks back, it called for 2 eggs (presumably this would loosen up the dry mix) half a tsp sweet paprica, and a small amount of snipped chives. They turned out a treat and the green specks made them look good.

Put some parmesan cheese in the mixture, plus sprinkled some finely grated parmesan on top and added black pepper and extra worcester sauce too. They were tasty and will make again, good to put into a lunch box.

Not cheesy enough for my liking. Prefer cheese scones.

Made a few mistakes with this: didn't have muffin cases/tin so tried in small cake cases. Overfilled the cases and they didn't really rise, and had burnt bottoms. The less burnt ones were quite nice, so I'll try again with a muffin tin/cases. They feel a little oily but not sure if that'd be so if I'd cooked them properly. My mix was not dry as some people have stated.

These really rose up high, looked very impressive! Next time I will use a mix of Parmesan and cheddar, the cheese taste wasn't very strong with cheddar alone, though the chunks were nice.

Made these to celebrate St Davids day at work - loved by all. Its surprising how many people prefer savory things to sweet so these were perfect .

Really enjoyed making these and they looked exactly like the photo. Once my daughters got over the fact that these muffins were savoury and not sweet, they gobbled them up as their after school snack. Having read all the comments, I added some bacon to the mixture and some parmesan cheese. Next time I'll add more bacon and use extra mature cheddar as well as the parmesan.

These were delicious. I needed to add extra milk to the batter and they did stick to the cases to some extent but on the whole turned out great.

Made these for Sunday brunch- were really flat and gooey texture and were way too oily. Even the birds didn't eat them !!! Will try Delia recipe next time as they never fail

Exceedingly nice muffins! Very easy. I was a bit slap dash with the ingredients - used the rest of a large pot of greek yoghurt (c. 400 ml liquid) and half cheddar, half parmesan - both grated. Used a 12 hole silicon muffin tin and they turned out easily - must be the oil in the recipe. Definitely a recipe to use again - perhaps with grated courgette, onion, tomatoes - whatever I have in the fridge that needs using up!

I made these for my daughter's birthday party but unfortunately none of the kids liked them! I thought they were quite tasty although I should have used stronger cheese and they tend to stick to their paper cases. I used extra milk as well as per others' suggestions.

I have made these muffins several times now they certainly need a very strong cheese, I also increased the worcester sauce to add more flavour but the best I have done so far is to add a tablespoon of chipotle chillie sauce to the mix,wow what a flavour adds another star to my rating

I tried these, taking the advice to add a little more milk but still they turned out rubbish. I tried with and without cake cases and each time they just welded themselves to the tin or the case! I am dissapointed, they were a muffin disaster!

Just made a batch of these and they are really light and fluffy. Tasty too, though I think I will add some bacon or sundried tomatoes next time. The mixture did look too dry when I mixed it all together so I added some extra milk and they turned out perfect.

I just made a batch of these muffins. They were very quick and easy to make. The possibilities of adding different ingredients are limitless. I added sundried tomatoes to one half and parma ham to the other. Unlike other comments my mixture wasn't too dry. The muffins are very light at least when they're warm.

I have just made two batches of these fab muffins. The first I stuck to the recipe, appart from changing the mustard powder for dijon. The second batch as well as the dijoin I added some small cuts of smokey bacon, they went down a storm with my partners teenage sons. As previous comments state, it really does need more milk as mixture very dry otherwise.
