Now I show you here a hearty variant of muffins, my Muffins with Bacon Recipe.

The hearty bacon and onion muffins are a great substitute for bread and give dishes an individual touch.

These muffins are perfect for summer snacks with ham, salami and antipasti. Even more: classic side dishes such as dumplings or mashed potatoes can be replaced by these muffins. 

The bacon and onion muffins are also a perfect finger food at your party:

Halved, the small bites are quickly filled with ham, horseradish or a light garlic mayonnaise and served to the guests with napkins.

For the preparation I recommend the use of muffin tray and muffin paper moulds. This Variant is sure to succeed. 

I wish you a lot of fun baking and would be happy if you share the article on Facebook.
