Bacon Cheddar Muffins
Bacon (about 12 slices)

bacon cheddar muffins ingredients

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cook bacon until crisp. Drain and reserve drippings. If necessary, add oil to drippings to measure 1/3 cup total. When cooled, crumble bacon and set aside.
In a small bowl combine 1/3 cup drippings, egg and milk.
In large bowl combine flour, sugar and baking powder. Make a little well in the center of the mixture. Add drippings/egg/milk all at once to flour mixture, stirring just until moistened. Batter should be a little lumpy.
Fold in bacon crumbles, shredded cheese, and cereal.
Spoon mixture into buttered or paper lined muffin pan, filling about 3/4 full.
Bake about 15 minutes or until golden.
