Method of Preparation

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin tin with paper liners.  
  2. In a non-stick pan, fry the bacon until crispy. Take the bacon out of the pan, allow to cool and crumble into a bowl.  
  3. Using the bacon fat, sauté the onion until they begin to caramelize. 
  4. In a large mixing bowl, add the all-purpose flour, corn flour, corn meal, sugar, salt, and baking powder, and whisk until well combined. Add the oil, eggs, and milk, one by one, stirring between each until well combined. 
  5. Add the crumbled bacon and onion, and stir until they are both well distributed in the batter. 
  6. Fill muffin tins until just over half-way full with a ¼ cup measure and bake for 18-22 minutes.
