Breakfast in a Muffin
APPLE TURNOVER MURDER
Preheat oven to 400 degrees, rack in middle position.
2 c. unsifted all-purpose flour
1 heaping tbsp. white sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2-1/2 tsp. baking powder
3 large eggs
1 c. whole milk or light cream (I used milk.)
1/2 c. melted butter (1 stick)
12 strips bacon, fully cooked
12 small or medium eggs
1/2 c. shredded Cheddar, Swiss, or Jack cheese (I used sharp Cheddar.)
Hannah's First Note:
First, decide whether you're making 12 regular or 6 jumbo muffins.
Choose pan accordingly.
In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
Stir with fork until evenly combined.
Whip 3 large eggs in medium-sized bowl with wire whisk.
Add milk and whisk in.
Add melted butter; mix well.
Make a well in bowl with flour mixture.
Dump liquid mixture into well; mix with spoon until all is moistened.
Batter should be lumpy; don't stir it smooth.
If you mix the cheese into the batter, the muffins don't look as nice, but
taste just as good.
Grease or spray with Pam or equivalent 12- or 6-cup muffin pan.
Give batter a final stir.
Put a spoonful of batter in each cup, enough to cover bottom.
Form each strip of bacon into a circle to fit into a muffin cup.
Press a strip into batter in each cup like small circular fence,
2 strips for jumbo muffins.
For each muffin cup, crack and separate a medium egg, 2 for jumbo.
Put all 12 whites in a bowl and save for other use.
Slide a yolk, 2 for jumbo, into each bacon corral.
(If yolks break, will not affect taste.) Divide remaining batter among
partially-filled muffin cups; just spoon in on top.
The muffins don't rise much, so cups can be filled almost all the way.
Sprinkle grated cheese on top.
Place muffin tin on a drip pan just in case, and put in oven.
Bake for 25 minutes, regular muffins at 400 degrees, jumbo at 375 degrees.
Makes 12 regular or 6 jumbo muffins.
Very pretty when sliced in half.
