There is just something about cold rainy days that screams Paradise Muffins and Soup! We can’t wait to put a big pot of it on the stove, then spend the rest of the day smelling that delicious aroma and anticipating the flavor.
As far as I am concerned, you can only eat just so many crackers, and some days you just don’t have enough time to make a loaf of homemade bread. In that case, I usually turn to one of my favorites, Paradise Muffins.
What are Paradise Muffins?
These are a savory muffin, chock full of bacon and cheddar cheese – perfect to either slather with butter or use to soak up that last bit of soup in the bowl.
- 1/4 cup Butter or Margarine
- 2 Tablespoon Sugar
- 1 large Egg
- 2 cups Flour
- 4 teaspoons Baking Powder
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt
- 1 cup Milk
- 4 slices Bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 1/2 cup Cheddar Cheese, grated
Beat butter and sugar until creamy: add egg, beating just until mixture is blended.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture alternately with milk. Stir in cheese and bacon.
Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.
Yield: 12 Paradise Muffins.
