Once a month, I’ll be highlighting a savory item on this blog, because there is only so much sugar and butter one can eat. Today’s savory item is a Southwest Pecorino Romano Bacon Mini Muffin.
Before I left my day job back in September, a coworker of mine pulled me aside and confided in me a secret. She was pregnant! She had been trying for quite some time, and finally FINALLY it happened! I couldn’t be more thrilled about it for her. My former coworker is a pretty amazing person, and she has gone through some incredible obstacles in her life, but having her there, telling me her dream of having a baby was coming true, was so fantastic and joyous. And then she asked me if I would cater her baby shower. How could I say no? So four months later, I found myself trying to come up with a decent menu for forty people for a baby shower. One of the items was the Southwest Pecorino Romano Bacon Mini Muffin which I made with New Mexico Hatch Valley fire roasted green chiles.
