Savoury Hurry Up Muffins

By Heidemarie Swanepoel

These are quick and easy muffins, with a delicious filling in the centre. I find that these muffins are also a good way of using up those little bits of left-overs that are too little to use for another meal, but too much to just throw away. I like using these little bits in crafty ways – even my boys enjoy their veggie muffins.

1 cup milk
2 eggs
½ cup oil
1 cup flour
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon BBQ salt
2 teaspoons baking powder

Filling:1 onion
3 rashers bacon
½ – 1 sweet pepper

Preheat your oven to 400’F.

Chop the bacon, onion and sweet pepper. Fry in a little oil till golden brown. Drain well.

1. Beat the egg and milk well, and add the other ingredients, and mix well. The dough has a very runny consistency.
Fill the bottom third of the well greased muffin pan with the dough.

Add filling

2. Spoon in a small amount of your filling.

3. Cover with the remaining dough.

Bake in your hot oven for 10 – 15 minutes, until lightly golden brown. Carefully remove from the pan once slightly cooled. Cool on a wire rack. Serve warm, or once cooled down.

Ideas for fillings:

For 12 muffins you will need ½ – 1 cup filling. Here are a couple more ideas for variations.
