The smell of frying bacon is one sure way to wake up the husband. Contrary to popular belief, I really don’t cook ALL the time. Weekdays it’s every man for himself, especially in the mornings! But, for some reason lately I’m an early riser on the weekends. I enjoy the quiet of the early hour, sipping my coffee, a little devotion time, and leisurely cooking breakfast.
This past weekend, I chose to try a King Arthur Flour recipe for Maple-Glazed Bacon Muffins. And yes, about the time these went into the oven, John walks into the kitchen with a grinning, “Do I smell bacon?” Of course, I expected this and saved one slice for him…well, actually only a half-slice…I might actually be guilty of snacking on the other half.
The original recipe for these Maple-Glazed Bacon Muffins was for baked donuts, but we really enjoyed the muffin version. If you like sweet and salty together–and especially if you like bacon–you’ll love these muffins! Be stingy with the glaze unless you have a serious sweet tooth, though, as we found these to be almost sweet enough before adding the glaze. Enjoy!
