    Everyone loves Boursin cheese, and this is a fantastic way to make use of it. These savoury muffins are great for brunch. The muffins freeze well and can also be easily reheated.

    Just like muffins should be! Easy and scrumptious. Can't wait to have these for lunch tomorrow at work, with a cucumber salad! However, I realize now that there's no mention of the chives in the preparation method... I didn't have any anyway but I guess next time I would add it to the mixture just after the eggs-boursin-milk mix.  -  05 Aug 2012

    Altered ingredient amounts. I used cream cheese with herbs instead of boursin. Nice, creamy, savoury muffin, perfect for brunch.  -  16 Apr 2011
