Bacon & Cheese Muffins

Bacon and muffins - a great way to start the day especially when they are mixed together.  I normally make these using mild Italian sausage instead of bacon but sometimes you just have to use what is on hand and you end up with delicious results.

Bacon & Cheese Muffins

6 slices bacon, cut into 1/2" slices, cooked and drained
2 cups flour
2 tbsp sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp parsley
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter melted
1 cup milk
1 large egg slightly beaten
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

Mix together dry ingredients.  Gradually add in milk, butter and egg.  Add in cooled bacon and cheese.  Grease standard or large muffin pans and fill each cup 2/3 full.  Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown at 350°.  Cool for 5 minutes before removing from cups.

Makes 12 regular size muffins.
