I haven't gone wrong with a Kitten recipe yet! I did cheat on this one and use a package of Oscar Mayer real bacon bits instead of frying my own bacon (and I had to use cheddar as I forgot the swiss at the store), but these muffins are great! I will be having them for breakfast sandwiches with an egg, and as a great side to chowder! Very flavorful and easy to make! Thank you!
