Cheesy Bacon Muffins

cheesybaconmuffinsYeah, you read that right.  Bacon muffins.  Muffins with bacon in them.  And cheese.  Muffins with bacon and cheese. Beautiful.

They’re really easy to make and delightful to consume.  Hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Oh, and they freeze wonderfully…if any of them make it to the freezer.

4-5 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 3/4 c. flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 T. sugar
1/3 c. butter, softened
1 egg
3/4 c. milk
1 c. grated cheese (I suggest using a flavorful cheese, like sharp cheddar or even hot pepper.  We’ve even used bleu cheese, but we only used about 1/4 cup.)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Line muffin pan with baking cups.

In large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar; mix well.

Add crumbled bacon and grated cheese; mix well.

Cut in butter with fork or pastry blender.

Add egg and milk; mix just until dry ingredients are moistened.

Fill muffin cups about 3/4 full.

Bake about 20-22 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

These are best served warm!

Makes about 9 muffins.
