Thanks CP,  these look SO good.  I will just have to make them.   I love a savoury Muffin.  Not so keen on the sweet ones.

The tomato chutney really does compliment the damper/muffins, and then to have the other 2 accompaniments just finishes the flavours off. Eaten like this they are a different take on a slice of bread with fillings.
