Bacon Cheddar Muffins

These muffins are delicious! they have a nice bacon flavor and they are super moist. My two sons mentioned that they couldn't taste the cheese flavor wich I suppose is semi true. You get a hint of it and it also could be because I wasnt useing a true cheddar cheese..I put in whatever shredded dutch cheese I had. So Im betting that if you make it with real cheddar you will taste it more. The muffins are decent sized and semi dense so serving these with eggs or fruit is more than enough.
