Recipe: Cheesy Bacon and Chive Corn Muffins

This recipe for Cheesy Bacon and Chive Muffins is a fast and easy way to jazz up corn muffins… the savory additions add another layer of flavor to a basic corn muffin. Using a corn muffin mix makes these a snap to throw together…

I served it for a Sunday Brunch… with eggs, bacon and hash browns… but they would also make a great addition to an evening meal. This would go wonderfully with a meatloaf or grilled chicken or steak….

I like to use buttermilk instead of milk in my corn muffins… I find it makes them less grainy and coarse… and using sour cream makes them lighter.

I hope you try this!
