Bacon Cheese Muffins

(Another picture turned sideways by Blogger!  What's the deal??)

I have had this recipe out on the counter for many weeks - thinking I would make them for the kids.  One of them finally asked, "Are you ever going to make that recipe?"  I think they were looking forward to me trying them!

Saturday I finally had the opportunity (and the desire) to make them for breakfast.  Probably because it was a late weekend breakfast instead of an early-morning-before-school breakfast.  The muffins were a big hit with everyone!
Bacon Cheese Muffins (recipe from Jean Childress' Country Kitchen Muffin Cookbook)

2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 egg
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup diced, well fried bacon, crumbled (I used Hormel already cooked bacon, so was able to just cut it up for the recipe.  So easy!)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Sift dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.  In a separate bowl, blend egg, milk and butter.  Add to dry ingredients.  Fold in cheese and bacon.  Turn into greased muffin tin.  Bake 20-25 minutes 

*Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.  If there is not enough batter to fill every muffin cup, put a little water in the empty cups to protect the pans and to keep the muffins moist (This recipe made 13 muffins when I made them.)
