Bacon and Cheddar Cheese Muffins-The Southern Lady Cooks

Cheese muffins are a great breakfast treat on the weekend or just anytime.  The bacon plus the cheese in the recipe makes them delicious and special. Your family will love these. Wonderful with coffee or serve them with a meal.  They will keep good for several days and can be reheated in the microwave or oven.  Who doesn’t like bacon and cheese together.  These are great slathered with your favorite jams and jellies.  You might also like our recipe for pineapple muffins with blueberries.
