For all the bacon lovers out there! Today I bring you a recipe of a savory muffin thats so delicious. Its easy to make, excellent for breakfast, picnics, journeys and kids tiffins. Just serve it with a salad and you have a nice meal. The “plus” ingredient here is the addition of crispy fried onions…this takes these muffins to a whole different dimension altogether. I am so sorry but I yet have to work out the vegetarian version of this which i shall do so soon 🙂
300 grams of white flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
a good pinch of salt
1/4 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper
100 grams of chopped bacon, i used one with little fat on it
140 grams of grated cheddar cheese, i used my bullet to grate it
2 medium sized room temperature eggs
250 ml of warm milk, i used semi skimmed milk but you can use whole or skimmed, or even soya milk or lactose free milk
85 grams of melted butter
3 tablespoons of crispy fried onions
Heat the oven to 180.
Put the bacon strips into a heated fryingpan without any oil and grill them till crispy on both sides. Drain them on kitchen paper and then cut them into tiny bits ( I used my magic scissors to do so) To buy them CLICK HERE
Beat the eggs slightly with the butter , salt, pepper . Add the fllour and baking powder , and mix and then add the warm milk gradually till all is well mixed. Add the crispy bacon bits, the crispy fried onions and half of the grated cheese. If you like it spicy you can even add some red chilli powder. Put the mixture into muffin cases and top with the remaining cheddar cheese. Bake till done (about 10-12 minutes) and cheese is lovely and golden. Serve with a smile and watch your family gobble them up!!
NITU DIDI TIP:
This cake can be kept for a couple of days in a covered container. Please wait till cool and then store.
The bacon can be replaced with chopped sausages, or even sauteed vegetables or finely chopped canned mushrooms, corn etc. For my HALAAL followers, please use turkey bacon, or mock bacon..
