Hello and Happy New Year!
Thanks for joining me for my regular Friday post and the First Foodie Friday of the New Year.
Today I am sharing my New Years Eve dinner for two. We went simple and Cozy partly because it was cold and rainy and because I wanted to feature
The main character Kayla found the way to Holt's heart by whipping up these. Holt made Kayla the best Burger she ever had.
Man Muffins filled with Bacon and Cheese. I added a bit of Jalepeno to a few.If you love Cornbread check out what happens when you add a bit or alot of Bacon.
Author Lenora says 'Who doesn't love Bacon? Bacon makes people Happy'.
The Cowboy and I enjoyed the Man Muffins they were a great accompaniment to a bowl of Beans and Ham . . .
Try whipping up a batch of Man Muffins for your Man.
Kayla's Man Muffins were inspired by the following recipe.
Found on Pinterest.
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
1 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese divided
6 or 8 strips bacon cooked to almost crisp and crumbled
1 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon Sriracha hot sauce (use a dash or two of Tabasco Sauce instead, if desired)
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Grease a 12-cup muffin tin well with butter and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, flour, baking powder and salt. Add 1 cup of the grated cheese (reserve 1/4 cup for topping the muffins before baking) and the crumbled bacon and stir into the dry ingredients until combined.
In a large glass measuring cup, measure the milk and vegetable oil.
Add the egg and hot sauce and whisk together to combine.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir together just until no streaks of flour appear.
Divide the batter evenly between the 12 prepared muffin cups and top with the remaining 1/3 cup grated cheddar cheese.
Bake for 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees Fahreheit or until the tops are slightly golden brown, the cheese is browned and bubbly, and the muffins are baked through (test with a toothpick).
Let cool in the muffin tin for about 5-10 minutes until removing the muffins to a wire rack to cool completely, or serve slightly warm with some butter and your favourite soup or stew.
These muffins keep fresh in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. They also freeze well in an airtight container for up to one month.
