Bacon & Cheese Muffin (Non-Halal)

Sorry guys that I have went missing for the past whole week. I was away for a short holiday actually. Miss you all very much too! Glad that I'm finally back. Hopefully, will be able to catch up with all of you very very soon. Gosh, just imagine how time flies. Christmas is just a couple of days ahead. I'm sure everyone of you are extremely busy with all the baking and decoration kind of stuffs. Actually, I'm too planning to do the cleaning up these few days, before school reopen soon. In addition, we're celebrating the Chinese New Year quite early in the coming year which falls on the 23rd of January 2012. Just about one month away! During this kind of hectic season, it's always great to make something quick & simple. And yet filling, to provide us enough energy for the first half of the day. I was gifted a packet of bacon weeks ago and thought of using it before expired. For non-halal baker, you can always replace bacon with chicken sausage.

So, here's what I did.
Ingredients :
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tspn salt
5 tbsp sugar
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/3 cup corn oil
1 bell pepper, cut in chunks
1/2 cup chopped pan fried bacon
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (keep some for topping)
1/2 cup chopped onion

Method :
(1) combine all dry ingredients included bacon, cheese, onion & bell pepper into a big bowl.
(2) in another bowl, stir together milk, egg and oil.
(3) then, slowly stir milk mixture into dry ingredients till well mixed. (do not over mix the batter)
(4) place batter to well coated muffin cups and top with some shredded cheese.
(5) finally, bake at preheated oven 200'c for about 20 mins

These muffins are really tasty and keep me going. The sweetness of onion & bell pepper is amazing. And the smell of cheese, simply something that I'm dying for. :o) I'm suggesting some addition of spring onion if possible. I bet it tastes even better. Ok Ok enough for food ! Seriously, hope you all will have a great week ahead and enjoy the festive mood......probably dancing in the kitchen ! It will definitely helps to keep you moving especially during this cold season. So, have fun!

Hi Kristy, hope you had a good visit with your family and everyone is well. Yes how time has flown by, I can't believe we've known each other for so long! Only 7 more days until Christmas, of course it less for you 12 hours ealier! :)

These muffins are wonderful and they are on the top of my "must make" list. I have made cheddar garlic muffins, and fontina pancetta muffins, so this will fit in perfect. I only hope mine will look as good as your do!
