These are really good and freeze well. Prep time does not include cooking the bacon.

These were very good but I agree that it needs more green onion (which surprises me with one of your recipes Kitz) All in all though a very nice muffin. I used sharp cheddar cheese because I could not find old cheddar. Thanks Kitz
