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
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.
