Cheddar Bacon Muffins!

These "Cheddar Bacon Muffins" are so simple to make and they are great with soups or stews or really just about anything!   Anytime you can whip up a homemade bread instead of something already baked, you know it's going to be better.   Here is what you need for these muffins:
1  1/2 cups self rising flour
1/2 cup self rising corn meal
1 cup milk
1 egg
4 Tbs. mayonnaise
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1/2 cup cooked bacon, crumbled or real bacon bits
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. garlic powder, divided
1 Tsp. dried parsley
2 Tbs. butter, melted
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a mixing bowl combine the flour, cornmeal, milk, egg and mayonnaise.   Add the cheese, bacon, basil, oregano and 1/4 tsp. garlic powder.   Divide evenly in well greased muffin tins.  This makes 8 large muffins or 12 smaller ones.   Bake for 13 to 15 minutes.
Combine the melted butter with the parsley and the other 1/4 tsp. garlic powder.  Brush on the tops of the muffins hot right out of the oven.
***If you cannot buy self rising flour or cornmeal in your area, use all purpose and add 2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp. salt to it.


  1. What if we cant find self rising corn meal?

    1. As long as you have self rising flour, it will be ok. I prefer the self rising corn meal, but in these since there is so little cornmeal it won't matter. If you can't find the self rising flour or cornmeal, add 2 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 tsp. salt.

  2. Thinking of using "muffin top" pan for these.

  3. Sounds and looks wonderful, can't wait to try these!
