I made these breakfast muffins last Sunday for a neighbour and they turned out really well.
They're savoury rather than sweet - but lots of flavour and lovely served warm with some herby butter.
60ml olive oil
1 chopped onion
pack streaky bacon rashers
10oz plain flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 large eggs
2 tbsp chopped thyme
2 tbsn chopped parsley
Preheat oven to 180deg C Fan
Fry the onion until soft and set aside. Chop 2/3 of the pack of bacon and fry until crispy. Keep 4 rashers of streaky bacon aside and fry whole until crispy.
Combine dry ingredients and add wet ingredients. Mix until just combined. Add the bacon and onion in last few strokes.
Spoon into a 12 standard silicone muffin mould - with or without paper cases. Place 1/3 of a rasher of streaky bacon on top of each muffin.
Bake for approx 20mins until skewer comes out clean.
When hot, brush tops with melted butter. Serve warm, with herby or normal butter.
