Kabocha and bacon are two of my favorite things.
Vegas and chocolate are also on that list.
Speaking of Vegas, these were Vegas-approved! I always consider that an accomplishment – my pasta-loving lady gives me the side-eye if I try to get *too* healthy on her. However, She can always be won over with bacon.
These muffins were inspired by the bacon grease I had leftover from breakfast at this past weekend. I always save it for cooking; you can use it in place of butter to grease a pan. It may sound strange, but why not use bacon grease in place of butter in baked goods too? It really is good!
