  • Portion size 12 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 bacon
  • 1 cup shredded old Cheddar cheese
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 egg

Method

Cook bacon over medium heat for 5 minutes or until crisp. Drain on paper towels; let cool and crumble. In small bowl, combine 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the crumbled bacon and 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the Cheddar; set aside.

In large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, pepper and salt ; stir in remaining bacon and Cheddar.

Whisk together milk, oil, onions, sour cream and eggs; pour over dry ingredients. Stir together just until moistened. Spoon into greased or paper-lined muffin cups; sprinkle reserved bacon and Cheddar mixture on top.

Bake in centre of 375°F (190°C) oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until tops are firm to the touch and muffins are golden. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container in refrigerator for up to 1 day or wrap individually and freeze in airtight container for up to 3 weeks. Rewarm before serving.)
