Perfect little snack for on-the-go, afternoon tea (warm from the oven is best!), an easy lunch-box option or party snack! You can mix and match the savoury ingredients to suit your taste and these can be also made as normal sized muffins.
2 cups of self-rising flour (or whole-meal/gluten-free flour and add 1 tsp of baking powder)
2 cups of grated cheese (and a little extra to sprinkle on top)
1 and a ¼ cup of milk of choice
50 g butter, melted
2 tsp. paprika (optional)
2-3 rashers of bacon, pan-fried and finely chopped (or ham)
½ cup of red capsicum, chopped finely
2-3 stalks of spring onion, finely chopped
Pre-heat the oven to 180°C and grease a mini-muffin tin. Put the flour and cheese in a bowl and make a well in the middle.
Mix the egg, milk and butter in a separate bowl then add to the flour. Add the bacon, paprika, capsicum and spring onion. Mix to combine.
Spoon into the muffins tins and sprinkle a little grated cheese on the top.
Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until golden on top. Remove from the oven and enjoy while still warm if you can!
Makes about 2 trays of 24 mini muffins – if you are lucky you can freeze some in your Kai Carrier Sandwich bags or snack packs
