Bacon & Cheese Muffins

Bacon and Cheese Muffins are a major hit over at our house. We add crispy bacon, and loads of freshly shredded cheese into these muffins for a savory take on a classic. Not only are these bacon & cheese muffins delicious right out of the oven with a pat of butter, but they are great served later in the week with a nice bowl of soup. So what are you waiting for, lets make them!

Bacon & Cheese Muffins


Units Scale


  • 8 slices thick cut bacon
  • 8 oz grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter (melted and cooled)
  • 1 3/4 cups flour


Instructions for Bacon Cheese Muffins

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Cut the bacon into ¼ inch pieces and fry in a pan until cooked through. Drain bacon on a paper towel and set aside to cool.

Whisk eggs and milk in a mixing bowl. Add in sugar, salt and baking powder. Whisk to combine. Whisk in melted butter and flour until no lumps remain. Using a rubber spatula, stir in cooked bacon and cheese until combined.

Scoop muffin batter evenly into 12 muffin tins. Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown, rotating halfway through. Remove from oven, allow to cool 5 minutes, then serve.




When we make these, we make a double batch, so we have some for later in week to serve with soup or chili!
