Savory Mushroom And Bacon Muffins Recipe

Updated on September 1, 2016

Great For Breakfast Or With A Bowl Of Soup

With Mushrooms and Bacon, it is a flavorful savory muffin. An alternative to the traditional sweet muffin and is hardy and satisfying. Cranberry Maple Muffin

When made ahead it is a great bring along breakfast when you are on the run.

Although I usually make this muffin for breakfast, I will often times make a batch to have with a bowl of soup..I always save a couple to have for tomorrows breakfast..they are good cold..but I will at times zap them in the microwave oven for about 10 seconds.

Ingredients For Savory Mushroom And Bacon Muffins

  • 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
  • 2 Green Onions, finely chopped
  • 2 Slices Bacon, diced
  • 3 Ounces Mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 2 Cups Self-Rising Flour
  • 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 2 Eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/4 Cups milk
  • 6 Mushrooms, sliced

For Savory Mushroom And Bacon Muffins

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line twelve standard muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. In a medium frying pan over medium heat, warm the oil. Add the green onions, bacon, and chopped mushrooms (DO NOT ADD THE SLICE MUSHROOMS YET) and cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a large bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder. Make a well in the center.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the eggs and milk. Add all at once to the flour mixture together with the mushroom mixture. Stir until just moistened ( the batter will be lumpy).
  5. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling them two-thirds full. Divide the sliced mushrooms evenly over the top of the batter. Bake until golden brown and cooked through, 15-20 minutes. Cool in pan for 5 minutes. Serve warm, or transfer to a wire rack to cool.

      I had to check this one out - it looks so interesting! I love savory foods, so the idea of muffins laced with mushrooms and (for me, turkey-style) bacon is intriguing. Voted up and shared!

      I saw the title of this recipe and had to check this out immediately. I love bacon in anything, but never had it in a muffin before. These would be great with soup or stew! I'm pinning this.
