RECIPE BACKSTORY
This was a recipe that came to me while making breakfast for dinner one night. I cooked extra bacon and just started experimenting. The texture is smooth but also has a touch of a grain texture. They can be made with sausage or ham. Country ham would work but you might want to cut the amount down due to the salt. These muffins will put you southerners right into "Grit Heaven."
