Bacon, Zucchini, and Swiss Chard Savory Muffins 

I love getting my CSA share, but especially my first year, but continuing now, I find myself thinking “what am I going to do with all this [insert any vegetable here]”. If you are like me and struggle with what to do with x,y, or z vegetable or simply looking to add more vegetables into your rotation, this summer series is for you!

I will be posting new recipes that highlight vegetables, really trying to focus on seasonality.

First one up, Swiss Chard!

This recipe is utterly delicious and a reminder that things that come out off a muffin tin don’t always have to be sweet. Have this recipe for breakfast or serve it as a fun side with dinner.

Seriously, look at all this yummy, summer goodness.

Bacon, Zucchini, and Swiss Chard Savory Muffins 

Bacon, Zucchini, and Swiss Chard Savory Muffins 


  • cooking spray
  • 6 slices bacon, diced
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 1 minced garlic
  • 10 chard leaves, stems removed and leaves thinly sliced
  • 2 zucchinis, shredded
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 ground black pepper
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¾ cup – 1 cup finely shredded Swiss cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Generously spray 12 muffin cups with cooking spray. Be sure to have all your vegetables prepped before starting the next part!
  2. Place a skillet over medium heat and add bacon. Cook gently until bacon begins to curl, 3 to 5 minutes. Add onion, garlic, and chard leaves; cook and stir until chard has wilted, stirring occasionally, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove bacon and dice.
  3. Place all the ingredients into a large bowl.
  4. Spoon batter into prepared muffin tin.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until edges of muffin turn golden brown, about 17 minutes.
  6. Serve and enjoy!


Note here, don’t skimp on your cheese. The better quality the cheese, the better it will taste.IMG_2184
