Ingredients

Sliced scallions 2/3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
Canadian bacon 3 Ounce , diced
Dried thyme 1/2 Teaspoon
All purpose flour 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs)
Yellow cornmeal 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Sugar 1 Tablespoon
Baking powder 1 1/2 Teaspoon
Baking soda 1/2 Teaspoon
Salt 1/2 Teaspoon
1% buttermilk/Soured milk 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Low Fat Variety)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400F.

Coat a 12-cup muffin pan with no-stick spray.

Coat a large no-stick skillet with no-stick spray and place over medium heat.

Add the scallions, bacon, and thyme.

Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the scallions are softened and the bacon has released some of its liquid.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Mix well.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, egg whites, and oil.

Stir into the flour mixture until just blended.

Stir in the seal-lion mixture and the Cheddar.

Divide the batter among the prepared muffin cups, filling them two-thirds full.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.

Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes.

Remove the muffins from the pan.
