Cheesy Bacon Cornbread Muffins


KRUSTEAZ® HONEY CORNBREAD MIX: To make this cornbread recipe super simple, I used my favorite cornbread mix. This cornbread mix is made with fresh corn, honey, and rich butter making it taste just like homemade without all the work.

MILK, EGG & VEGETABLE OIL: I recommend using 2% or whole milk because it will add even more flavor to these cornbread muffins.

CHEDDAR CHEESE: Being from Wisconsin, we eat a lot of cheese. I love using different kinds of cheese’s when making these muffins, like Pepper jack cheese and a four cheese blend.

BACON: I don’t know about you but I’m not the biggest fan of making bacon. So I love to use Oscar Mayer Real Bacon Recipe Pieces instead. They are perfect for recipes like this and the bacon tastes just as good if I would of made it myself.

MIX IT UP: No need to bring out your mixer, all you need is a large bowl and a spatula. Mix all the ingredients together until blended.

ICE CREAM SCOOPER: The best way to fill a muffin pan with batter is an ice cream scooper.

RE-HEAT MUFFINS: These muffins re-heat in the microwave really well. Just place the muffin(s) on a microwave safe plate and microwave for about 15-30 seconds depending on your microwave.
