You want to know the best way I’ve found to get all of my men-folk out of bed in the mornings? Make bacon. Hoooah! <—that was me grunting out a manly sound, did you hear it? That’s the sound that typically follows the word bacon in our house. “Mmm, bacon. Hoooah!”
I believe bacon is the language of love when it comes to most males, and I happen to like bacon too, if I do say so myself.
I usually stick with turkey bacon, but it really is hard to beat the taste of the pork bacon I can get from our local farmer. It’s a wonderful, occasional treat at our house – and yes, it does drive the boys out of bed in the morning.
These Bacon Cheese Muffins are easy and delicious – perfect for a holiday brunch. (You may remember seeing this recipe in our free Healthy Breakfast Made Simple eBook.)
Bacon Cheese Muffins
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup sucanat or brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup melted butter or coconut oil
1/2 cup bacon
1/2 cup shredded cheese
Using kitchen shears, cut bacon into bite sized pieces. Brown bacon pieces in a skillet until thoroughly cooked. In a mixing bowl combine flour, sucanat, baking powder, and sea salt. Add egg, milk, and butter. Fold in cooked bacon and shredded cheese. Scoop batter into 12 paper-lined muffin tins. Bake in a 400° oven for 15-20 minutes or until muffins are golden brown.
Are you bacon lovers at your house? Hoooah!
