Bacon-cheddar muffins as your Weekend Eats reminder

We like to start out each week out on a food lover’s note: We gather online at Facebook and on Twitter to swap photos of our Weekend Eats in an effort to beat the Monday Morning blues. But in recent weeks, I also noticed another thread of activity: Muffin Monday.

Muffin Monday is a sweet and savory initiative launched by Anuradha at the India-based blog, Baker Street. It’s exactly what it sounds like: Anuradha picks a muffin recipe each week, fellow bloggers join in the baking of it, and then share the results on line.


I jumped at the chance to join this week when the muffin pick was savory: Bacon-cheddar muffins. You can find the recipe at Baker Street. While I am not much of a baker, the recipe turned out swell. (I put my own spin on it by adding green onions and swapping out one cup of regular flour for a cup of whole wheat flour. You know. To make it healthy.)

Consider this your invitation to join in, too, for Muffin Monday and help Anuradha make the start to the week just a little bit brighter. And then you can also submit that photo to Weekend Eats. See how this all comes full circle?
