Blue Cheese, Bacon and Dill Cornbread Muffins

Can I just say I love cornbread ? I do. I wish I could eat it everyday. These cornbread muffins we had with some lovely French Onion Chowder and Cheese... It was a perfect fit. In case you didn't get the first two hints...the recipe for these is here : cornbread . For muffins, use a half recipe. So...one cup flour instead of two...


Instead of sour milk or buttermilk, I used 1 cup prepared dill dip. Sue me.

I stopped myself from smearing this all over my face, despite the natural beauty it would have enhanced. That lactic acid alone is worth gobbing on your face...it's the clumps of onion I'm not so sure about. I mean really, what if a chunk got caught in my ear canal. That would defeat the whole purpose of the beauty scrub, right? Wait, why would anything get caught in my ear canal if I'm rubbing it on my face?! That was totally random.

Then I added 1/2 cup cooked crumbled bacon and 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese.

Why is it when I say or type bacon, I oink out loud. I also snort when I laugh sometimes. Which has nothing to do with muffins...


Mix just until combined, like the cornbread recipe states. Scoop into 12 muffin cups, lined with cupcake papers if you'd like. Bake 425 degrees, 12-15 minutes. Remove from pan. Put them in a lovely basket lined with a crisp clean kitchen towel...not one your kids have used to wash the turtle.

If you are not a cutsie chick or guy then just eat them standing up in the kitchen slathered in drippy butter. I do mean slather the muffins, not yourself. I see how that first sentence could be totally misunderstood.
I'm not checking to see if you present them in a decorative manner. Do what you want!

Dig in.

I know you are saying "Um...yum!" about the muffins and not the last comment I posted right?!

Though I DO love Crystal Lite...I do not prefer it up noses.

And hey, if you ever want a delicious punch for some kind of gathering...Mix a 2 liter of Sprite with a round of Crystal Lite (I prefer lemon lime flavor). Sounds simple, but it's addicting.
