Bacon and hazelnut muffins

It's time for something different today. I checked my fridge and there was  a piece of bacon sitting on a shelf. I wasn't really sure if I can use it for muffins, but found interesting recipe in  a book 'New Italian Cuisine. Muffins'. These muffins taste like scramble eggs with bacon and onion for me. Maybe because they contain fried onion ? And thanks hazelnuts they are very crunchy :)  

Ingredients for 6 muffins:
  • 125g diced bacon
  • 1 small chopped onion
  • 25g chopped hazelnuts
  • 110g flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 45g melted butter
  • 60ml natural yogurt
  • 100ml milk
  • butter for greasing baking tin
Preheat the oven to 190C. Grease 6 hole muffin tin.
On a Teflon frying pan fry bacon for 3-4 min until brown. Then add the onion and nuts, fry them until onion gets soft. Leave on a side to cool down.
Into a bowl sift the flour, baking powder and salt. In separate bowl whisk the egg, butter, milk and yogurt. Whisk them well. Gradually add dry ingredients and fried bacon, onion and nuts. Mix only to combine all ingredients. 
Spoon the batter into baking tin. Bake for 20 min until muffin well risen and spongy. 
After baking leave muffins in the tin to cool down. Muffins are very good warm and cold.
