These muffins have all the flavor of a slice of pizza in a convenient little package. Seasoned with fresh oregano, fresh parmesan and gouda are incorporated into the muffin batter. Preparation of the batter is made easy in a stand mixer. Line the muffin tins with a slice of bacon and pour in the muffin batter. Bake time is 20 to 25 minutes or until the skewer comes out clean.
