                                                                  Muffin tops were a big thing on Seinfeld, and understandably so: They’re crunchy yet soft, and the best part of the muffin. They’re also the ideal item to dunk in bisque. What to buy: Muffin top pans can be found at specialty kitchen stores, but if you can’t get your hands on one, a regular 12-well muffin pan will work, too (baking times remain the same). This recipe was featured as part of our Festivus menu.

                                                                  Ingredients
                                                                  • Yes No 6 oz bacon, drippings
                                                                  • Yes No 1 cup fine stone ground yellow cornmeal
                                                                  • Yes No 1 cup all purpose flour
                                                                  • Yes No 3 tbsp sugar, granulated
                                                                  • Yes No 2 tsp baking powder
                                                                  • Yes No 2 tsp kosher salt
                                                                  • Yes No 1 tsp baking soda
                                                                  • Yes No 6 tbsp unsalted butter
                                                                  • Yes No 1 cup buttermilk (1% fat)
                                                                  • Yes No 3 large egg
                                                                  • Yes No 2 tsp minced thyme
                                                                  • Heat the oven to 400°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Coat the wells of 2 6-well muffin top pans or 1 standard 12-well muffin pan with bacon drippings (or vegetable oil); set aside.
                                                                  • Combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a large bowl and whisk to aerate and break up any lumps.
                                                                  • In a medium bowl, combine butter, buttermilk, eggs, and thyme and whisk until incorporated and smooth.
                                                                  • Add wet ingredients to dry, stirring just until incorporated, about 1 minute. Divide batter evenly (about 1/3 cup) among the wells, and sprinkle about 1 heaping teaspoon of bacon over each muffin top.
                                                                  • Bake muffin tops until golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 15 minutes. Let sit in the pans 5 minutes before removing.
                                                                  Yields: 12muffin tops
