Excellent muffin recipe. I usually make them for a breakfast dish. This recipe is from the "Family Circle" or "Woman's Day" magazine, 2005.

These turned out a little dry for me.. maybe I didn't correctly measure the bacon fat. Also I bought the cheapest corn meal in the store, maybe that was the problem. I'll try again though because I think it's a good base recipe.
