Savory Bacon Onion Cornbread Muffins

I looked back at my notes and found a recipe for cornbread loaf. They are old recipes that belonged to my grandmother. I am baking up some snacks to take to work and to put in Rodrigo’s snack box. I thought this recipe would be perfect for the occasion. But my grandmother’s recipe needs some more goodness to it. So what could be better than 12 Savory Bacon Onion Cornbread Muffins.

Not too long ago, we made Savory Cornbread Egg Muffins and they were amazing and rich with the boiled egg in the center. So we decided to bake them again without adding the  boiled egg. In this recipe, we added bacon strips and chopped onions to give it a kick!
