Bacon and cheddar muffins – oh yeah!! smoky cheesy goodness get in my belly now! Even the kids gobbled these up. I served them with a Roasted Garlic and Kale Soup.
1 c buttermilk
1/4 c vegetable oil
1 c shredded cheddar cheese
8 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
2 c all purpose flour
2 TBSP sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp Kosher salt
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
1 tsp Creole seasoning.
Preheat oven to 400.
In a large bowl, beat the egg, milk and oil together. Stir in the bacon crumbles and shredded cheddar cheese.
Add the dry ingredients, stirring as you go, incorporating just until blended.
Fill greased muffin cups 2/3 full.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes until cooked all the way through. Cool for 5 minutes and remove from the muffin pan, placing on a wire rack to cool. Best served when warm.
Makes 12 muffins.
