How to Bake Savory Bacon Cheddar Muffins

Who doesn’t love a freshly baked muffin?

And we’ve actually found a way to make them better with new flavor.

Let’s make Bacon Cheddar Muffins!

Bacon Cheddar Muffins

Lay 1 pound bacon out on a baking sheet in an even layer.

Place the baking sheet into a cold oven. Set the temperature to 400 degrees and set a timer for 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes check the bacon and remove when crispy.

Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain.

Reserve the drippings and measure out 1/3 cup.

Once the bacon is cool, crumble it.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine 1 large egg, 3/4 cup milk, 1 and 3/4 cups flour,  1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 tablespoon baking powder, and bacon drippings.

Stir until combined. There will still be some lumps.

Stir in the bacon and 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese until evenly distributed.

Divide the batter among a lightly greased muffin tin.
