This recipe, Bacon Muffins, comes from an adaption of Speedy Sausage Muffins (click to get the recipe) in this new cookbook.  When I saw the recipe, I knew right away that I wanted to make it and add my own twist.  Instead of using the sausage in the original recipe, I used bacon.  I also discovered that you can leave out the meat and have a tasty Cheese Muffin!  Enjoy.

Ingredients

3/4 lb bacon, browned, drained and crumbled
3 c. biscuit baking mix
1 1/2 c. shredded Cheddar cheese
10-3/4 oz can Cheddar cheese soup
3/4 c. water

Directions

Combine bacon, baking mix and cheese in a large bowl; make a well in center of mixture.  Stir together soup and water; add to sausage mixture, stirring just until combined.  Spoon into lightly greased muffin cups, filling to top of cups.  Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until lightly golden.  Serve warm.  Makes 16 muffins.

*Hints: The bacon can be substituted with any meat.  The original recipe was for sausage.  You can easily use bacon, sausage, ham, cheese of any kind, veggies, etc.  Play with it and see what you come up with! We topped each muffin, before baking with whatever was inside so we could identify the muffin.  This is a super recipe if you need to bring a breakfast dish or cooking for a crowd.  We froze our extra in individual freezer bags so one at a time could be pulled out and warmed up in the microwave.

These look good. I like the idea of topping it with the ingredient that is inside so you can tell what it is filled with.
