Mini BLT Muffins Bacon Lettuce (Basil) and Tomatoes

Pin It Now!

 OH BOY MUFFINS!  And just the right size... Min Muffins, just a bite or two!

But not just any muffins.  For these I went totally savory with all the flavors of a Classic BLT (Bacon lettuce and tomato Sandwich)!

Rich, moist (two secrets to insure extra moistness, sour cream and Mayonnaise) and simply exploding with flavors.

I made these for a Sunday morning Church social hour and they were a huge hit.  Of course anything with bacon is always a hit but the flavor combination set these apart!

The recipe will make 48 mini muffins, make larger muffins (be sure to cut the baking time by about 1/3rd) and the recipe will make about a dozen.

Unique flavors for a muffin (Classic flavors for a sandwich), super moist and a delicious combination makes these such a winner...

Enjoy indeed!

 OK... Here's what I did...

Mini BLT Muffins
Bacon Lettuce (Basil) and Tomatoes

  • 3 Cups Flour
  • 2 TBS Baking Powder
  • 2 TBS Sugar
  • 1 Cup Half and Half
  • 1/2 Cup Sour Cream
  • 1/2 Cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 Pound Crumbled cooked crispy Bacon
  • 1 Cup Chopped Tomatoes, drained and seeds removed
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh chopped Basil
Cooking Directions
  1. Prepare a mini-muffin pan with non stick spray.  Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the Half and Half, Mayonnaise and Sour Cream.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients, Flour, Baking Powder and Sugar.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and fold to mix.
  5. Add the BLT (Bacon basil and Tomatoes) and stir to evenly mix.  Fold gently to mix, do not over mix,
  6. In a prepared mini muffin baking sheet (non-stick spray is a must, the extras will caramelize and stick), Spoon the batter into the pan, filling each cup to the level of the rims.
  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes until the tops just start to turn golden brown and delicious.
  8. Allow to rest for 5 minutes in the pan then transfer to a cooling rack.
  9. Serve warm with a COLD Glass of milk or room temperature with a HOT cup of coffee and ENJOY!
