When the three oldest grands spent Sunday night with us,
we knew they'd expect one of Papa's home cooked breakfasts on Memorial Day.
He made eggs, bacon and sausage, (only grandson doesn't like bacon),
and it was requested that I make some muffins.
My first thought was blueberry muffins, but I was out of blueberries.
So, necessity being the mother of invention, I whipped these up using what I had on hand.
They were a big hit, and healthy too!
