Sweet Bacon and Cheese Breakfast Muffins #MuffinMonday

Hello friends.  Are you all recuperated from your Christmas celebrations?  I am not but I am planning on recuperating today.  I am going to just sit for a while this morning and relax with my coffee and a nice sweet and savory muffin.  Sweet and Savory, you ask?  Why yes.  You have heard of candied bacon?

Well, I was making my basic muffin recipe which I normally use for sweet muffins, perhaps adding fruit or chocolate to them.

Midstream I decided that I wanted to use up some cooked and crumbled bacon that I had  for another recipe that never got made.  Hence we ended up with a sweet and savory muffin that was pretty darn good if I do say so myself.

I enjoyed one with my coffee and I put the rest into a freezer bag and into the freezer.  I will pull them out Wednesday morning to serve to Frank's students as they arrive for his CPL class.

Sweet Bacon and Cheese Breakfast Muffins

2 c. flour
3 t. baking powder
dash of salt
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 c. milk
1/4 c. canola oil
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 c. shredded colby jack cheese

Combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a large bowl.  Whisk together the egg, milk and oil in a 2 c. measuring cup.  Make a well in the flour mixture and pour in the milk mixture.  Stir with a fork until just combined.  Stir in the bacon and cheese.  Divide batter between 12 muffin cups that have been lined with paper liners or treated with cooking spray.  Bake in a preheated 400* oven for 15-18 minutes, until a skewer inserted in the center of a muffin removes cleanly.  Print Recipe

  1. Lucky students! I know what you mean by recipes that never got made. Always happens to me during the holidays! These sound outstanding!

  2. I know about recipes that don't get made! The worst is looking at something I bought and wondering what on earth I was going to use it in. Shortly after using it in something else, I always remember! But bacon is good in anything.

  3. These muffins look really good. I know Harley would like them for her 'on the run' breakfast
