“I developed this recipe when I had an abundance of zucchini and wanted a muffin to have with a chicken dinner. These savory muffins are great as a quick breakfast too! They're a hit even with those who think they don't like zucchini!” - by Pam-3BoysMama
Original recipe yields 12 muffins
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray 12 muffin cups with cooking spray.
- Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.
- In another bowl, stir together the butter, egg, milk, zucchini, and garlic until well blended. Mix the flour mixture into the milk mixture, about 1/2 cup at a time, stirring between additions, until the flour mixture is incorporated. Fold in the Cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese, and crumbled bacon, and pour the batter into the prepared muffin cups.
- Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Allow muffins to cool slightly before removing from muffin cups; serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers.

Cold ingredients drop the temperature of the batter resulting in longer baking time/underdone baked goods. This recipe calls for milk and an egg. I let mine warm up first (you can cheat here). Remember that oven temperatures vary, but the temp is always hotter at the top and cooler at the bottom. Opening the oven door repeatedly can also drop the temperature by up to 25 degrees. I do have one recommendation - if you use liners, I'd go with the foil type - the cheese in these muffins tends to stick to the paper. These are a moist muffin inside - there is yummy melty cheese all through. "
"I was really excited to make these sadly they were bland. It needs at least 2 to 3 more bacon slices and maybe and extra 1/2 cup cheddar cheese or even a sharp white cheese added.
