Savory Cheddar Zucchini Muffins
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup milk
1 cup shredded unpeeled zucchini
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
4 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray 12 muffin cups with cooking spray.
2 Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.
3 In another bowl, stir together the butter, egg, milk, zucchini, and garlic until well blended. Mix the flour mixture into the milk mixture, about 1/2 cup at a time, stirring between additions, until the flour mixture is incorporated. Fold in the Cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese(if using), and crumbled bacon(if using), and pour the batter into the prepared muffin cups.
4 Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Allow muffins to cool slightly before removing from muffin cups; serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers.
