Cheesy Bacon Muffins

These are hearty muffins that are great for breakfast or served with soup for lunch. I use 1 cup all purpose flour and 3/4 wheat flour to make them a bit healthier.


1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled


In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. In another bowl; combine the egg, milk and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in bacon. Fill greased muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 375 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until muffins test done. Makes 8 muffins.
