Maple Bacon Muffins

Okay, Okay...I was a little skeptical too...BACON MUFFINS???? Seriously, they 
just work...for some reason they just do!! I made them for breakfast, got A LOT of 
face pulling from the family, but ONCE they bit into them, they decided that I wasn't completely off
my rocker! The bacon and the maple compliment each other and make these fabulous muffins

Maple Bacon Muffins
2 c. flour
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
3/4 c. milk
1/2 c. butter, melted
1/2 c. maple syrup
1/4 c. sour cream
1 egg
1/2 t. vanilla

Combine dry ingredient. Whisk together. Set aside. In a separate bowl, combine milk, butter, sour cream, egg and vanilla. Stir in the dry ingredient until everything is just moistened. Spray muffin tin with cooking spray. Fill each cut 2/3 full. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-17 minutes. Cool slightly....15 minutes is what I cooled mine for. Frost with Maple Bacon Frosting (recipe below). Serve.

Maple Bacon Frosting:
1/2 c. butter, softened
1/4 c. maple syrup
1 t. maple extract
2-3 c. powdered sugar (add amount so that you get the consistency that you want your frosting)
1 lb. crisp cooked bacon, crumbled

Use electric mixer, beat butter, maple syrup and extract. Add powdered sugar, a little at a time. Mix until smooth and to the consistency that you desire. Spread over the top of each muffin, sprinkle with bacon crumbles. EAT UP!!! AMAZING!!
