Maple Bacon Corn Muffins

Nothing says love like deliciously moist corn muffins.

Maple Bacon Corn Muffins

I grew up eating corn muffins so you could say I definitely know a thing or two about them. In fact, I am known to make tons of cornbread recipes on my blog. I might even consider myself an expert. That’s why I knew I definitely had to make these corn muffins when I saw them on BHG.com. The recipe held its own and was just like I remembered.

These are the perfect texture; they have the perfect amount of sweetness; and they are perfect for any occasion (whether for a quick grab and go breakfast or as a side to a spicy comforting bowl of chili). It was also a fast one bowl recipe that only required a whisk (less dishes, more convenience). For fun, I decided to give the original recipe a breakfast spin when I saw the additional suggestions. Maple syrup and bacon just scream breakfast to me, and inside a moist and delicious corn muffin, they stand out even more! Bits of chopped bacon and maple syrup are added to the batter.

To create the updated recipe, I made the following edits:

  • I halved the recipe since its just the hubby and I. No need to have too many of these tempting muffins lying around for guilty pleasure consumption.
  • For every cup of batter, I folded in 1/4 cup chopped crisp cooked bacon and 1 tablespoon of pure maple syrup.
  • To garnish, I piled remaining bits of bacon on top of each muffin and drizzled maple syrup down the sides.

The final results are the perfect twist for lazy Sunday mornings when breakfasts truly count.


Ingredient Obsession: Pumpkin!

Hello! My name is Lauren Brennan and I’m a food blogger from Oregon. My site is called Lauren’s Latest and I develop recipes with everyday, common ingredients for my little family of 3 and share them with my readers, along with my 3 year old’s daily antics. I love blogging, probably because I love food! Therefore, the whole food blogger thing is right up my alley. I’m thrilled to be sharing some Better Homes and Garden’s recipes with you on their new blog, Delish Dish! It’s going to be a fun ride.Tis the season to throw pumpkin into EVERYTHING! With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I thought it only fitting to start off the season with a post devoted entirely to our orange friend the pumpkin.

A lot of times pumpkin is used in desserts, but these days you’re seeing pumpkin pop up anywhere and everywhere! Pumpkin Mac and Cheese is pretty popular. {I know I made a version with lots of bacon that went over swimmingly!} Pumpkin stews, soups, and even bruschetta are popping up all over the web.

Today, I wanted to share a cute little recipe I found on BHG.com for Pumpkin-Pecan Tassies aka cute little mini pies that are a cross between pumpkin and pecan pies! Totally adorable treats that can easily be made in advance…if you can resist eating these bite sized pies!

Here’s how you make them:

Start by making some pie dough. The recipe calls for refrigerated pie dough, but I didn’t have any on hand, so I made a BHG recipe found here. Once that is good and chilled, you can roll the dough out and cut out 24 2-1/2-inch rounds.

Fit these down into some ungreased mini muffin tins to line. Set aside.

For the pumpkin filling, measure out some pumpkin, sugar, pumpkin pie spice*, salt, egg and milk. Stir to just combine. Set aside.

For the pecan topping, stir pecans, brown sugar and melted butter together and that’s it! Super simple, right? {I didn’t have pecans on hand, so I used hazelnuts…still yummy! Feel free to use walnuts or almonds in place of pecans. I say use what you have!}

To make these cuties, spoon about 2 teaspoons of pumpkin filling into each crust…

and then top with a scant 1 teaspoon of pecan topping.

Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until filling is set and crust is golden brown. Remove tassies from muffin tins cool to room temperature. Before serving, add a drizzle of maple syrup, if desired and that’s it!

Really simple to make and totally delicious!
