Everybody loves it, but rarely admits it. Just think of the lovely smell of sizzling bacon and its crunchy, salty taste. Just lovely! In Britain bacon is mainly used in a full English breakfast, but I tried it in some savoury muffins. You can serve them with the bacon-wrapped fishcakes if you are a real bacon lover.
For the basic dough mix you'll need milk, breadcrumbs, eggs and spring onions. And for the really yummy bit you'll need some of your favourite cheese (I used mature Gouda cheese), chives and... BACON ;) Cut the cheese in small cubes, and slice the spring onions and the chives. Then you'll have to fry the bacon until it is golden, but not too crispy (what a shame). But as usual I didn't follow the recipe and fried it until crispy. Believe me, it does not spoil the muffins, so go ahead and fry it nicely.
(that is if anything is left to cut up ;) Then mix all your ingredients together. Add the chives and bacon in the end. You can try to stir it with a spoon, but using your hands will yield the best results.
