Chores Were Exhausting

Chores Were Exhausting

Jax is a great helper while I am doing chores. He burns more energy running around making sure the livestock is doing what they are supposed to be doing, than I do actually working.
He works hard and naps hard too. A dog’s life is blissful.

Cheddar Bacon Breakfast Muffins

Breakfast is always the hardest meal to organize and keep on hand for me. The kids have to eat before school, and yet  nothing sounds good to them. I have been messing around with muffins, and came up with a really tasty one that tastes fantastic, is more filling than a regular sweet type muffin, and the family actually ASKS for them!

Bacon Cheddar Breakfast Muffins

Try these savory breakfast muffins for a change of pace. They are delicious warm or at room temperature.
Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Keyword: bacon, breakfast, cheese, muffins

Equipment

  • Muffin Tin-oiled lightly
  • Medium mixing bowl

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 Cup All-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 Cup Sharp Cheese Shredded
  • 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1/3 Cup Crispy Bacon` Chopped
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 1/2 Stick Butter Melted

Instructions

  • In mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, brown sugar, cheese, and bacon.
  • Add butter and milk. Combine until a thick batter forms
  • Oil 12 muffin cups and divide batter evenly
  • Bake 400 degrees for 20 minutes

Sprinkle the muffins with Parmesan cheese before baking, and whatever you do, do NOT use paper liners! I made a double batch, and used paper on 6 of them, foil liners on 6, and left the second dozen with no liners. The ONLY ones that stuck to the liners, were the paper ones.

These are deeelish!
