Time for another cooking with Connie post. This time I made "Bacon & Cheese muffins", yep you heard me!
For Christmas my husband got a Bacon cookbook from my Brother and his girlfriend. She is working at a company that makes bacon, well they make a lot more, but that is what they are famous for. So far it's only the employees that have the cookbook, but it should be on sale soon too. When Frank saw her bacon book he just loved it, and she just knew that she had to get an extra one for him for Christmas. Denmark is a big bacon country, though the sad thing is the best bacon is exported out of the country, United Kingdom is one of the big takers of our great bacon, and we are stuck with the not so good bacon, can you believe it?
I thought the "Bacon & Cheese muffins" sounded crazy, but good. To me a muffin has always been some sort of cake, but if you think about as a bread, well I must admit, they are crazy good:)
Here you got the simple recipe, yeah isn't it just great that the recipe is really easy as well?
150 g chopped bacon
250 g flour
2½ teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon paprika
100 g grated cheddar cheese
a small hand full chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon thyme
3 tablespoons olive oil
2½ dl milk
Fry the bacon, and save the bacon fat. Save 1/3 if the bacon to use as topping.
Mix flour, fried bacon, baking powder, paprika, grated cheese, thyme and walnuts in a bowl. In another bowl whisk together the bacon fat, olive oil, eggs and milk.
Mix the 2 bowls together and pour the batter into a muffin tray, sprinkle with bacon and, bake for 25 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius.
Let them cool before serving. The only problem I had was that they stuck a bit to the paper muffin forms, but that didn't stop them from being delicious.
