Savory Muffins Three Ways

“This is an adaptation of a newspaper recipe. These would be great as mini-muffins for a buffet, as an appetizer, or just an accompaniment to soup, salad or anywhere you'd like to serve a little bread on the side. Note: The nutritional value will be off since the flavor ingredients are listed with the directions. Sorry, but I didn't want all three to run up the calories either!”
