Spray muffin tins with nonstick oil spray and pour batter evenly among 12 tins (making sure bacon bits are evenly distributed throughout each muffin). Bake for 15 minutes, then carefully take muffins out of the oven and sprinkle tops with shredded cheese and second slice of chopped bacon. Place muffins back in oven for another 10 to 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted, and bacon and eggs are cooked.
