Sweet corn, touched with just a bit of salt and black pepper, complements smoky candied bacon.
Ah, summer. The heat doesn't stop me from baking, but it does make me think about seasonal ingredients.

A few bits of cheese and some savory chopped scallions make for an ideal contrast to the standard sweet muffins that are often served in the morning. These muffins are not only great on their own, served warm with a bit of butter, but would make an excellent accompaniment to some scrambled eggs with salsa, or even huevos rancheros. (Or some hearty chili later in the day).
