I first saw this recipe months ago while scrolling through my news feed and knew I HAD to make it. I saved the recipe and would go back to it over and over again causing excessive amounts of drooling and crazy pregnancy cravings! Until finally I had some free time to actually make it this past weekend. It was so quick and easy to cook up and well worth the wait. The sauce gives a burst of savory flavor with every bite! I changed the ingredients a little from the original recipe but the mix of butter, Dijon mustard, honey and garlic is unbelievably tasty. You can find the original recipe on Crème De La Crumbs blog, or try my little twist on it below.

If you’re feeling a bit European this morning, take a chance on these “French-Style” Breakfast Muffins. They’re super quick to whip up and make great leftovers. You can store them in an air tight container for a few days and grab one on the go every morning. For those lazy mornings when you have all the time in the world, these go great with your coffee and a few dabs of butter. Or to keep with the European theme, a nice hot cup of English Breakfast Tea on the side. I personally love having my Lipton Black Tea in the morning with a few shots of milk and sugar. It’s my makeshift version of English Breakfast Tea. And I finally have the perfect thing to pair with my tea now that I’ve discovered these muffins.
If you look up original French Breakfast Muffin recipes out there, you’ll notice that many of them submerge the WHOLE muffin in melted butter and then roll it around in sugar. For my recipe, I opted to just spread the top of the hot muffins with softened butter and then sprinkle with a cinnamon sugar mixture. That’s my way of pretending to be somewhat healthy. Of course, I did end up spreading a ton of butter on almost every bite of this muffin, so really, I may as well have dipped the whole thing in butter to begin with. I’ll let you guys make your own decision on that part. ;)
