Cheddar Bacon and Green Onion Muffins

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Kittencal@recipezazz

These muffins are fabulous eaten just baked warm out of the oven... great to serve warm with stew or soup or anything! They freeze well for up to 1 month, just warm before serving. Use a slightly heaping tablespoon of baking powder for this recipe. If you like heat add in 1 finely chopped jalapeno pepper. Prep time does not include cooking bacon.

These were very good with lots of flavor and easy to prepare. I found the batter to be quite thick, so experimented with baking them for the same amount of time and temp. just on parchment paper-lined bake sheet. They worked out really well. Thanks for a great recipe.
