"This one was given to me by a girlfriend and it was yummy (we had regular size). Still have to make it myself. I have included cooking the bacon in the cooking time. UPDATE quizzed the girlfriend, she gave the recipe as is not as she does - so o'kay the difference is she used 6 slices of short rindless bacon (which is basically just the bacon meat only - no fat), therefore yes you would need the oil, she felt that way was healthier than the bacon fat."

These are some great 'to go' breakfast muffins. I actually like them after they have completely cooled more than warm, as I an take the onion more when they are cooled. Next time I might add a little dill as I found them a bit plain. I did cut down the butter to 4 tbsp as I thought an entire stick seemed excessive, and I upped the milk a tad to offer enough moisture. Looking forward to an easy breakfast all week.
