“Moist, flavorful, and a welcomed addition to breakfast. Great with chorizo, scrambled eggs, and salsa. Adapted from "Onions: A Country Garden Cookbook". The use of green onions here helps make these muffins so zesty as well as the optional use of ancho or chipotle powder for more of a spice. Either way, on as a Sunday Supper on the farm, or for a later Sunday breakfast you can't go wrong. Remember you have a ton of work out in the garden you better fill up now.”
