Pancake Bacon Muffins & Sage Pork


8/16/2015 For lunch today (when we have our big meal) I decided to try a new recipe.  Hubby made the microwave bacon while I mixed the batter.  Oh, yum bacon!  I wanted to eat it off he plate instead of putting it in the muffins.

I put the bacon into the batter anyway.

How do people manage to fill muffin tins without making a mess on the top of the tin?


Here they are coming out of the oven! Oh these were yummy!

Here is the recipe.

1 1/2 cup flour (I used bread flour because that's what I had on hand)
1 tablespoon sugar (which I don't like sweet, so this appealed to me!)
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt

Put all of the above in a bowl and mix.

1 egg
1 cup milk
1/4 cup maple syrup (I just used pancake syrup as I had it on hand, but I'm sure the good stuff would be even better)
2 tablespoon canola oil
1 tsp. vanilla

Put all of the above in a bowl and mix. I did all the mixing by hand.

Combine the wet into the dry. Stir in 1 cup cooked, crumbled bacon.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Drizzle with additional maple syrup, as desired.

Then I sliced some pork up into thin strips and added it to the pan with some olive oil already getting hot as I cut.

I added some rubbed sage and some basil spices from a jar.  When it was all cooked, I added two tablespoons of butter and let that melt into it all.  

So here is my plate!  I added blueberries for color.  I drizzled syrup over everything.
I thought the idea of having pancakes in the form of a muffin a fun twist.

Oh, and as it good!  Hubby even went back for two more pancake bacon muffins and more pork!  He rarely gets seconds.  I'm glad he liked them.  I did try a third muffin, but only to see how it tasted with butter rather than syrup.  It tasted good that way too.

I thought the muffin and the pork an odd combination, but it really worked!
