These are quite nice but not cheesy enough all round. Lovely when you get. Bit where the cheese has Izard out and gone crispy! I had to use plain yog as no Greek in the fridge. I would increase the cheese and the Worcester sauce and try it with buttermilk instead of ordinary milk and lesss yog.

Have just made these, they are really yummy and very moreish, (saying as I finish off my second helping ;-) I think I actually prefer these to cheese scones! Great for my sons packed lunch and think they will work well with homemade soup

Needed a stronger cheese, a bit more mustard, a bit more fluid (milk or oil), and I'd add some kind of topping. And perhaps some cubed ham pieces, or bacon, just jazz it up a bit. But it's a very decent recipe to begin with.

Loved these think I'll try a grated carrot in the mixture next time. Very easy to make.

I decided to add some extra vege to make them healthier for my son. I added 2 grated carrots, half a Finely chopped onion and some extra milk. Love them! YUM. Super quick and easy to make.

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.
