    4       sl           Bacon
    1 1/2   c            All-purpose flour
    2       ts           Baking powder
      1/4   ts           Baking soda
      1/2   ts           Salt
      1/4   c            Sugar
      1/2   c            Shredded cheddar cheese 2-oz
    1                    Egg
      1/2   c            Sourdough starter
      2/3   c            Milk
      1/3   c            Vegetable oil or bacon
                         - drippings
   In a skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp.
   Reserve bacon drippings, if desired.  Drain cooked
   bacon on paper towels. Crumble and set aside.  Grease
   12 muffin cups or line with paper liners; set aside.
   Preheat oven to 400~F.  In a large bowl, sitr together
   flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.
   Stir in cheese; set aside. In a medium bowl, beat egg.
   Stir in sourdough starter, milk and oil or drippings.
   Add to flour mixture.  Stir with fork until dry
   ingredients are just moistened. Fold in crumbled
   bacon.  Fill prepared muffin cups 2/3 to 3/4 full with
   batter. Bake in preheated oven 20 to 25 minutes or
   until golden brown. Remove from muffin cups.  Serve
   Great for breakfast with a glass of orange juice!
   These turned out absolutely WONDERFUL.  I would
   suggest greasing the muffin tins very well. The cheese
   tends to make them stick a little!
