Happy Memorial Day!
You guys. . where did the year go?! We are one week away from June and SUMMER!!! I can’t believe it. Our summer will be filled with parties, entertaining, traveling and just some good old fashioned summer fun and relaxing. This is the plan at least. And if we can fit in swim lessons for the girls, even better.
School ends in a couple of weeks and with that, some graduation parties and other end of the school year parties. I’ll be making these savory cheddar cheese, chive and bacon muffins!
After making these, I wanted to make a similar recipe that would work in a regular sized muffin pan. And this recipe is it! If you like cheddar cheese and bacon . . and uh, who doesn’t?! You will love these muffins.
These are sure to be a huge hit at your next summer BBQ or gathering.
Cheddar Cheese Chive and Bacon Muffins
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter plus extra for greasing the muffin pan
- 3 large eggs at room temp
- 1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 cup milk you can use whole milk or 2%
- 1 cup cheddar cheese freshly grated
- 5 slices bacon cut in half, cooked until crispy and chopped into small pieces
- 1/4 cup chives finely diced
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and thoroughly grease your muffin pan. Melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl and set aside to cool slightly. Break the eggs into the same bowl with the slightly cooled melted butter and whisk gently. Next, whisk in the flour, salt and milk until just barely blended; a few lumps are fine.

Oh how I wish I got a summer break…although technically I might get two months this year out of lab. Love these cheddar goodness!!
I am very excited about this summer thing that is happening. VERY. And with it, all the BBQs and potlucks and delicious muffins! These look really good. They’re full of goodness, so how could they not be? I love bread that is filled with cheese. It’s pretty much where it all is at!

Summer can’t come sooner. We have three more weeks of school and then exams. I can’t believe how fast the year flew by. Alice, these muffins would be perfect for a summer cookout! 🙂

Sweet muffins are awesome and all, but hand me a savory muffin filled with BACON and cheese and I am one happy girl. These look soooooo darn addicting. I have no doubt I’d eat the entire batch. 😉
Cheddar + bacon + chive is a marriage made in heaven. Granted, a polygamous marriage but still a marriage and made in heaven.
Those muffins look amazing, I could use a couple today for lunch!

Seriously! I can’t believe the year is nearly halfway over! Where does the time go!? Hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! These muffins are redonkulous – way better than just ridiculous 😉 I mean really, just look at how moist the inside is! I would totally devour an entire tin of these! You ROCK!

What a perfect way to start the day – or a perfect afternoon pick-me-up! These look wonderful Alice!
My kids would devour these, if they could get them away from me first! I love these fluffy, savory muffins!
