BREKKIE MUFFINS ● AUNTIE BARBARA’S RECIPE
there has been a lot of baking going on in this house lately… pregnancy seems to be the culprit. so i dug up my Auntie Barbara’s Meal in a Muffin recipe, it definitely hit the spot! savory, cheesy, bacon-y goodness all wrapped into one. i decided to make them for a little Valentine’s Day breakfast treat (i cut hearts out of the bacon strips) and it just so happens to be Aunt Barabara’s Birthday (rest her soul). just brings a smile to my face thinking how happy it would make her to know our baby is craving these already. Happy Birthday Barbara and Happy Valentine’s Day everybody.
