20120620-082341.jpg

I came up with this recipe one day, by trying to one up my own recipe. I made these Hefeweizen muffins and even jalapeño muffins, but I decided to take a little risk and combine all these great ingredients together. The result was amazing

  • 1 box of Jiff Cornbread Muffin Mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of hefeweizen beer of your choice
  • pre-cooked bacon, diced small
  • 1 finely diced jalapeño
  • 3 tablespoons of grated cheese

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Make sure the consistency is not too watery – you may have overdone the beer. If so add a little flour. If it’s perfect, spoon it into greased muffin pans and bake for 10-12 minutes or whatever it says on the box20120620-082352.jpg
