PARTNER POST: We’ve teamed up with Bonne Maman to bring you the best homemade breakfast and brunch recipes to show Mom you care this Mother’s Day and all spring long.
These blueberry jalapeño cornbread muffins with bacon will wake up your taste buds with their fun combination of sweet, spicy and savory flavors. They’re perfect for brunch!
Cornbread is one of my favorite breads out there, and for a bread-lover like myself to say that, you know that’s pretty darn high praise.
Bonne Maman then asked me to create a savory recipe for Mother’s Day with their preserves and it hit me. Blueberry jalapeño bacon cornbread muffins.
These muffins are stupid simple to make. In a little over 30 minutes, you have a little cup-sized breakfast that has everything you could ever want. The sweet and tart Bonne Maman Wild Blueberry Preserves mellow out the bites of bacon and the heat from the jalapeño.
I mean, just look at that swirl of blueberry goodness…
The muffins are soft and moist (*cringes* I still hate that word….), giving you little bits of all the flavors in every single bite you take.
Everyone will be clambering to devour these bad boys – just make sure you don’t let them before you bring one to your mama in bed!
