We found these a little sweet for our taste, but thought they had a great combination of flavors! Next time I'll just cut the amount sugar in half. Oh, and I used canola oil instead bacon drippings (had drained the drippings before remembering I was supposed to use them) but they still had a great bacon flavor.

I loved these! The ingredients went so well together and I loved how there was a hint of sweetness to them. I halved the recipe to make seven muffins and baked them for about 18-20 minutes. I didn't have enough shredded cheddar cheese but I had cheddar cheese slices so I broke about three slices into little pieces instead. Yummy!
