These cheesy cornmeal muffins from the 'Food52' blog put a savory spin on a traditionally sweet treat. Although breakfast muffins are generally on the sweet side, this recipe provides a different way to enjoy the tasty pastries.

The cornmeal muffin recipe is inspired by the flavors of scones, which come in sweet and savory varieties. To create the perfect blend of flavors, the muffins are made from a combination of cornmeal, crumbled feta cheese and fresh herbs. The cheese adds a salty element to the corn base, while the herbs provide the perfect blend of savory flavors. The herbs used in this recipe include parsley, thyme and rosemary, but these could easily be substituted based on personal preference.

For those who prefer their breakfasts on the savory side, these tasty cornmeal muffins are an excellent alternative to traditionally sweet muffins.
