Maple Bacon Breakfast Muffins

I'm always looking for new recipes for breakfast for Andrew so he won't be tempted to stop and buy a processed breakfast sandwich at the gas station.

I found this recipe and figured it would be like buttermilk pancakes with a side of bacon all covered in maple syrup. So fingers crossed these will be more appealing then a greasy sandwich sitting under the heat lamp. ;)

  • 10 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 2 tbsp of brown sugar
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1 egg, beaten with a fork
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 2/3 cup of pure maple syrup plus 1 tbsp
  • 1 cup of buttermilk

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and grease your muffin pan.

2. In a small bowl toss the bacon with 1 tbsp of brown sugar. If the sugar doesn't seem to be stick to the bacon, microwave it for 10 seconds or so. Set aside.

3. In another bowl, mix together the egg, olive oil, buttermilk, and 2/3 cup of maple syrup.

4. In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Make a well in the middle and pour in the wet ingredients. Stir until just combined. Then add in 3/4 of the bacon.

5. Spoon evenly into muffin tins, top each with a few pieces of the remaining bacon. Then drizzle the remaining syrup onto the top of each. Bake for approx 20mins - 30mins (depending on muffin size) or until golden and a toothpick comes out clean.

Makes 6 jumbo muffins or 12 regular sized muffins.
