Breakfast in a Muffin



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.


Michelle's Note:

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.
