What Do You Get When You Combine a Figure Skater and Bacon?

No, not a greasy triple axel or savory Salchow, you get Bacon Corn Muffins with Savory Cream Cheese Frosting of course! As I mentioned in this post, I was trying out a few recipes to cook for my family for our Christmas appetizer smorgasbord and after seeing Brian Boitano make these on his show, What Would Brian Boitano Make, I decided I really, really wanted to give them a try. Y’all, these were a hit! My mom and big sis kept giving me lots of compliments on how great they tasted and I most certainly loved them too.

These were actually really simple to put together except I had to cook the bacon in the oven waaaay longer than the recipe calls for since my Mom’s oven sucks. Her birthday is coming up in January and I’m really hoping she gets a new one (Hint, hint Dad). Also, I didn’t have a piping bag so I just had to spoon the frosting on, and as my sister Gelana pointed out, please take them out of the muffin tins before you frost them…silly me.

I highly recommend these muffins and think it would be a new year’s eve party insta-hit as it is a crowd pleasing, fun and unique recipe. If you haven’t watched the four episodes Food Network has so far for What Would Brian Boitano Make, you should take the time, it has a lightness and sense of humor to it that so many Food Network shows are missing; I can’t wait to watch the new episodes in March 2010.

And now, the South Park song that started it all.

  1. A little tip–if you don't have a piping bag, you can just scoop your stuff into a regular Ziploc bag and snip the corner off with scissors. Works perfectly and you can just toss it away when you're done.

  2. Thank you for the tip Nicole, why in the heck didn't I think of this when I was at home? Oh that's right, I had shut my brain completely off during the holidays! 😉 Thanks and hope you had a happy food-filled holiday.

  3. No problem! :)

    We actually didn't cook or anything this time (Darius's mom did everything), so the last thing I really made was all of those batches of cookies. Did you get to try out the tiny chocolate chip ones? Seriously, you must! They are so so so good!

  4. YAY, those cookies! I'm going to try and make them this weekend, thank you for the reminder. Wow those look so great, in fact all of those cookies looked amazing.
