For this month I needed to make muffins to serve with coffee for one of Frank's Concealed Pistol classes. I had some leftover zucchini that I had shredded and put in the freezer after using part of it for Zucchini Jam that I knew I wanted to incorporate. I also had some leftover bacon that I crumbled up and of course, every breakfast muffin must have cheese. I still had a brick of chipotle cheddar that I had received from Cabot Creamery when they sponsored Brunch Week at the beginning of the month. I thought the smoky goodness of this cheese would be perfect with the bacon and zucchini and I was right!
There were only 4 students and a dozen muffins. Only two of the dozen remained after morning coffee. I would say they were a great success.
