Cheddar Bacon Muffins
For those guests who prefer savoury to sweet, these hearty snacks are an ideal - and quick! - solution.


6 strips bacon
1 cup (250 mL) shredded old cheddar cheese
3 cups (750 mL) all-purpose flour
2 tbsp (25 mL) granulated sugar
4 tsp (18 mL) baking powder
2 tsp (10 mL) pepper
1 tsp (5 mL) salt
1 cup (250 mL) milk
1/2 cup (125 mL) vegetable oil
1/2 cup (125 mL) sliced green onions
1/2 cup (125 mL) sour cream
2 eggs


Cook bacon over medium heat for 5 minutes or until crisp. Drain on paper towels; let cool and crumble. In small bowl, combine 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the crumbled bacon and 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the cheddar; set aside.

In large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, pepper and salt ; stir in remaining bacon and cheddar.

Whisk together milk, oil, onions, sour cream and eggs; pour over dry ingredients. Stir together just until moistened. Spoon into greased or paper-lined muffin cups; sprinkle reserved bacon and cheddar mixture on top.

Bake in centre of 375°F (190°C) oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until tops are firm to the touch and muffins are golden. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container in refrigerator for up to 1 day or wrap individually and freeze in airtight container for up to 3 weeks. Rewarm before serving.)
