Do you know the muffin man?

Do you know the muffin man?
The muffin man the muffin man.
Do you know the muffin man?
That lives in Drury Lane?

Yes I know the muffin man
The muffin man the muffin man
Yes I know the muffin man that lives in Drury lane

Victorian households had many of their fresh foods delivered; muffins would be delivered door-to-door by a muffin man.    Back in those days muffins were what we call English Muffins today, a bread made of yeasted dough and baked on a hot griddle . . . not the sweet, cakey variety we Americans usually associate with the word.

Interestingly, Drury Lane is an actual street in London that is, in fact, known for its muffins. 


Brie, Swiss and Bacon Quiche

1 Package Deep Dish Pie Crust
4 Ounces, Brie Cheese
4 Ounces, Swiss Cheese, Diced
10 Slices Bacon, Cooked Crisp, Drained, Crumbled
6 Whole Large Eggs
½ Cups Whipping Cream
½ Cups Sour Cream
1 Teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 Dash Each Nutmeg, Salt, Pepper

Crumble cheeses in the bottom of the pie.

Spread crumbled bacon on top.  Mix all remaining ingredients thoroughly and pour into the pie pan.

Bake in a preheated 375 degree F oven for about 45 minutes, until a pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool slightly before serving.  The left overs are good served cold, as well.
