Canadian Bacon & Cheese Muffins

Nothing like being awakened early thanks to your cat, struggling to keep your eyes open while sipping on your daily limit of caffeine ~ a can of Coke and wondering what's for breakfast.  That's what happened to me this morning.  I opened the refrigerator door and pulled out Canadian bacon and cheese and decided it was a good time to create a new breakfast muffin.


                      Canadian Bacon & Cheese Muffins

Serving Size  : 6 Jumbo Muffins 

   1 3/4 cups flour
   2 1/2 tsp baking powder
   1/4 tsp cayenne
   1/4 tsp garlic powder
   1 tsp sugar
   1/2 tsp salt
   1 1/4 cups buttermilk
   2 large eggs
   1 cup Canadian bacon, diced
   1 cup Marble jack cheese, shredded

Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl.  Add in eggs and
buttermilk.  Stir only until ingredients are mixed - do not overmix.  Fold
in Canadian bacon and cheese.

Bake at 350° for 30 minutes.

I used jumbo muffin cups - filled 3/4 full.  If you use regular muffin
cups, still fill 3/4 full but adjust baking time down.
