Making Muffins! Bacon Cheddar Muffins!

How do you feel about muffins? How about a delicious bacon and cheddar cheese one!!
This was the recipe that my blogger friend Anuradha from BakerStreet gave us to try for her Muffin Monday special.
So to make this awesome recipe I invited my favorite baker Marnely Rodriguez from Cooking with books to my cocina.
Muffins are a great way to make small portions of your favorite sweets or savory baked goods. This bacon cheddar ones are a great option for breakfast or for a quick and delicious afternoon snack.

6 strips bacon cooked and chopped
1 cup shredded and aged cheddar
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tbsp granulated sugar
1 1/4 tbsp baking powder
2 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup sour cream
2 eggs

Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C) and grease or paper line a 12 hole muffin pan
In small bowl, combine 1 tbsp of the chopped bacon and 2 tbsp of the Cheddar; set aside.
In large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, pepper and salt ; stir in remaining bacon and Cheddar.
Whisk together milk, oil, sour cream and eggs; pour over dry ingredients. Stir together just until moistened. Do not overmix.
Spoon into greased or paper-lined muffin cups; sprinkle reserved bacon and Cheddar mixture on top.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until tops are firm to the touch and muffins are golden.

*This is a great recipe but nell and I made some slight changes to it.
We added a little bit more cheese and bacon then necessary because we are crazy!
We also added a little more salt then the recipe calls and 1/2 a medium dice onion and 2 garlic cloves minced to the bacon and cheddar mix.

Guys you are going to love the muffins! So let Monday Muffin start!

'Till next time
