Special equipment: 2 (24-count) nonstick mini muffin tins, Pastry Bag
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Place bacon onto a baking sheet and bake until crisp about 12 minutes.
Remove from baking sheet and place onto a plate lined with a paper towel. Reserve 1 tablespoon of the bacon fat. Once bacon is cool enough to handle, chop into small pieces.
Spray a 24-count mini muffin tray with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
In a large bowl combine flour, cornmeal, salt, baking powder, and brown sugar. In a separate bowl whisk the milk and egg.
Whisk the milk mixture, melted butter and bacon fat into the dry ingredients.
Add 3/4 of the chopped cooked bacon, reserve remaining 1/4 for a garnish.
Fill each muffin cup with 1 tablespoon of the batter so the cups are filled about 3/4 of the way up.
Bake in oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted into the muffins comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before icing.
While muffins are cooling, in a medium bowl beat the cream cheese, honey and hot sauce with a hand mixer until soft and combined.
Add 3/4 of the sliced chives, reserve remaining 1/4 for a garnish.
Transfer mixture to a pastry bag and snip off the end.
Once the muffins have cooled, pipe a small amount of the cream cheese mixture on top of each one.
Garnish with remaining crumbled bacon and remaining chopped chives.
Recommended wine: Riesling, Sparkling Wine, Zinfandel
Riesling, Sparkling Wine, and Zinfandel are my top picks for Corn Muffins. In general, there are a few rules that will help you pair wine with southern food. Food-friendly riesling or sparkling white wine will work with many fried foods, while zinfandel is great with barbecued fare. You could try Dr. Thanisch Graacher Himmelreich Spatlese Riesling. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 19 dollars per bottle.
Dr. Thanisch Graacher Himmelreich Spatlese RieslingGraach is an excellent wine growing village in the heart of the Middle Mosel. The steep slopes of the Graacher Himmelreich vineyard are facing South-West. They are exclusively planted with Riesling.The nose displays a sweet floral quality of plummeria, fresh peach with a touch of petrol character which is common in German wines. Often the more age a German wine has, the stronger the petrol character. There is nothing wrong with wines with this aroma. This 2003 vintage, only shows a slight – medium petrol aroma. Brimful with character, the Himmelreich Spätlese palate is a wonderful mix of peach, honey and mango. The medium weight interplays enticingly with the finely bound acidity.
