A savory muffin including turkey bacon, cheese, and green onions – perfect as part of your breakfast meal!

Serves: 8 (Serving = 1 muffin)


  • Cooking spray
  • 8 slices of turkey bacon, diced 
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder 
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 2/3 cup 1% milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar 
  • 2/3 cup non-fat, plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil 
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup finely sliced green onions
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray muffin tins with cooking spray.
  2. Heat a non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add bacon and fry until lightly browned. Remove and place on a paper towel to drain the fat. Then set aside,
  3. In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder and baking soda.
  4. In a small bowl whisk together milk, vinegar, yogurt, vegetable oil, and egg. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until flour is almost incorporated. (Limit to 8 stirs, overmixing will make muffins hard.)
  5. Add green onion, bacon and cheese to mixture. (Stir 5 times.)
  6. Fill muffin tins to the top.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
  8. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack. Best served warm.
