Bacon Cheddar Corn Muffins

Bacon Cheddar Corn Muffins Recipe - quick homemade corn muffins stuffed with cheese and bacon YUM!

No good BBQ is complete without a yummy corn muffin.  These corn muffins are not your ordinary corn muffin; they are over the top – packed full of cheddar cheese and bacon!  YUM!

I had a small concern about this recipe because it has sugar in it.  In my house, cornbread is not suppose to be sweet. I decided to go with it since it was only a tablespoon.  The muffins turned out great.  They weren’t sweet and we both loved the cheddar and bacon.  They were especially good with a big ol’ dollop of honey butter!

  1. Looks awesome, but I expected to see bacon in the cross-section photo. My wife and I love bacon, cheese, and cornbread. This is a great way to get all three.

  2. These look delicious! I like to add sharp cheddar and green chiles to my cornbread but haven't added bacon before. I'll definitely give these a try. I am unfamiliar with self-rising cornmeal – have to go check out the grocery store now!
