Cooking Mama: Savory Bacon & Cheese Muffins

Muffins are always quick and mess-free to make, so I thought I should bake these babies more often. You can experiment with so many things; caramelized onions, spinach and cheese, smoked chicken fillet perhaps?

* 2 cups all purpose flour – sifted
* 4 tsp baking powder
*  1/4 tsp salt
*  1  1/2 cups milk
*  1 large egg – beaten
*  50 gr melted butter (may be replaced by low fat cooking oil)
*  3/4 cup strong vintage cheese, cut into tiny cubes
*  2 tbs bacon, make tiny shreds
*  2 tbs chopped red & green bell peppers (optional)
*  pinch of cayenne pepper powder

Cooking directions:

1.)  Sift flour, baking powder, salt and cayenne pepper into a bowl. Stir well to combine

2.) In a different bowl mix in egg, butter and milk. Stir into the flour mixture.

3.) I prefer to bake the bacons until they’re crispy, but this can be replaced by bacon bits or omitted completely.
Fold in chopped bell peppers, bacon and cheese cubes.
I prefer the cubed cheese rather than grated cheese – but it’s up to you really

4.) Prepare muffin tins with papercups. Fill about 2/3 with dough mixture. Bake at 200 degrees for 15 – 20 mnts

  1. It was great finally meet you properly today, instead of this internet affair we’ve been having, LOL. These look fab. I have a similar relationship myself with muffins – I don’t make them for ages and then I finally do, and I’m like “What is wrong with me that I am not making these all the time?”
