Happy Bacon Monday! Fo' Sizzle!
Why Bacon and why Monday? Last year The God Whisperers came up with "Rules of Lent by The God Whisperers" (Listen to Episode 132) on their "radio show podcast." They are friends of my family and because of their wild and popular podcast & Facebook these rules of Lent began spreading around other like-minded adults and kids! So friends all over the place started celebrating bacon on Mondays! It has all been in fun. So if you want to hear more from the God Whisperers click on their link and listen to their show.
So from there I decided to blog about Bacon Monday and share some recipes that I have made or tried from other recipes! I've been able to score some giveaways to go along with my Bacon Monday!
This week, the recipe is one that I made a few months ago while going through a Gooseberry Patch Cookbook. I tried a recipe for Sausage Muffins and from there Bacon Muffins were born and are they ever tasty! They aren't sweet and are perfect for a grab-and-go breakfast. These are easy to make. We made them and froze them in individual baggies so that one could be pulled out at a time! They just take a quick zap in the microwave and are easy to eat on the run. If you want a sweet bacon muffin, you'll have to check out last week's Bacon and Butterscotch Breakfast Muffins! They were ranked #2 in the Top 10 Best Bacon Breakfast Recipes by the Republic of Bacon!
Bacon Muffins (click to print)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
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.
This week we are giving away an awesome Bacon Tshirt from Crazy Dog T-shirts. I'm a huge fan of their t-shirts for myself and as for gifts from others. (I'll have a different tshirt giveaway next week so make sure you come back)
