These are great for packed lunches and a light dinner. Just serve with a green salad!
Bacon, Leek and Cheese Muffins
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

1 tablespoon Baking Powder
1/3 cup Vegetable Oil
3/4 cup Milk
2 large Eggs
4 rashers of Bacon
1/2 cup finely chopped Leeks
1 1/2 cups grated Cheese
Fry up the bacon until crispy, crumble then set aside. In the remaining bacon fat sauté the leeks until soft, then set aside to cool.
In a large bowl add the flour, baking powder & cheese. Add in the oil, milk, & eggs. Add in the cooled bacon and leeks. Mix until combined.
Line a 9 cup muffin tin with paper baking cups and fill each baking cup 2/3 full with the muffin mix.

Change up the flavor by using fresh herbs, or sausage or dried fruit like figs or feta cheese.
