Bacon and Cheese Muffins ~ Perfect breakfast muffin and delicious served warm with butter only #Muffins #Breakfast #SavoryMuffins

There must be hundreds, if not thousands, of recipes for Bacon and Cheese Muffins !  Maybe a something extra, more or less of either the cheese or the bacon, or even different flours used.

All of us have our favorite recipe, which falls into this category… or even more than one!

The recipe I am sharing today, is my favorite, and as I mentioned before, I like baking muffins – sweet and savory.

This recipe took 20 minutes from start to finish. When I make a recipe which requires cooked bacon, I quickly nuke them in the microwave, in a bacon-microwave dish – 2 – 3 minutes and it is done.

We had this today again (after a delicious appetizer) served with cold meat.. Pastrami and Roast beef .. and a coleslaw.

It was a great late lunch/early dinner as it was very hot all over Gauteng today and a cooked meal was really not on the menu, not in this heat!
