Recipe: Bacon and Cheese Muffins

My family loves muffins!  Pancakes and muffins...two of my kids favorite things.  We definitely have our tried and true favorite recipes for both, but we are like to experiment.  Okay, I like to experiment and my family reaps the rewards.  I have been looking for some new muffin recipes to give a try and hopped over to one of my favorite blogs, Mommy's Kitchen.  I absolutely love Tina's blog and have enjoyed many a great meal from her shared recipes.  And, bonus, like me she lives in Texas not too far from where I live (which would be the middle of nowhere, but I LOVE it!).  As I was perusing, I came across this recipe for Bacon and Cheese muffins.  It has our family's favorite two food groups...bacon and cheese.  I knew that my kids, and husband, would gobble these up in no time.  They did and loved it!

These muffins are tender and delicious!  I know they would be perfect to freeze and pull out on those morning when we are rushed.  Mine never made it to the freezer because they were immediately enjoyed!
