This is a fairly easy and pretty basic recipe, that allows for your own additions. You can add herbs of your choice, finely diced tomatoes, mushrooms, pineapple, spring onions – you're only limited by your imagination and taste preferences.

Ingredients (makes 12 Muffins)

  • 2 cups Self-Raising Flour
  • 2 cups Tasty Matured Cheese (grated)
  • 2 cups Skim Milk
  • 2 rashers Bacon (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 small Onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 clove Garlic (crushed)
  • Extra grated Cheese


  1. Sift flour into a large mixing bowl. Stir through grated cheese, bacon, onion and garlic. Gently mix in milk, ensuring well combined without over-mixing.
  2. Grease and flour 12 cup muffin pan, and divide muffin mixture evenly between 12 cups. Sprinkle a little of the extra cheese on top of each muffin.
  3. Bake at 180 degrees C for around 20 - 30 minutes. Check after 20 minutes, as cooking time will depend on your oven. Cool muffins on a wire rack before serving.


Do make sure that you grease the muffin trays really well, as these muffins are notorious for sticking. Alternatively, use paper patty-pans in the muffin tray. These muffins can be frozen for up to 12 weeks, as long as they're well-wrapped in cling-wrap, or sealed in snap-lock bags.

  • I’m always looking for different muffin options for my son to eat after school. He does love them but I find I need to mix it up. Had not considered savoury, so love this idea.


  • Yum. I think I’d be tempted to sneak in some chopped spinach too.


  • Easy recipe indeed and it doesn’t contain eggs ! Is it airy enough or more compact ?


  • Sounds like a recipe that Jamie Oliver would make – ‘Easy Peasy’ haha.
