School is back today, and there have been so many lovely lunch box idea posts floating around the internet over the last couple of days that I got all enthusiastic and cooked up a storm yesterday. I don’t think my kids have any appreciation for how pretty their lunch looked today though.
I made these cheese and bacon muffins yesterday and with the neighbours kids round for a ‘last day of the holidays’ play, they all got eaten in about 2 minutes flat. So I had to make them all over again, but at least I know they are popular.
Although Hollie did tell me “They taste just like pizza mum, except please don’t put that yucky tomato on next time!”
They are one of the quickest and easiest savoury muffin recipes I’ve ever made and fit perfectly into our bento lunch boxes. They also freeze pretty well too, so I would make a double batch if I were you.
- 90g (6 slices) bacon
- 130g grated cheese
- 160g milk
- 20g olive oil
- 1 egg
- 110g plain flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp stock paste
- 6 cherry tomatoes (halved)
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
- Fry the bacon in a pan until it is nice and crispy.
- Put the cooked bacon in the thermomix and chop for 5 seconds on speed 5.
- Add the cheese, milk, olive oil, egg and stock paste and mix on reverse speed 5 for 10 seconds.
- Add the flour and baking powder and put your butterfly into place.
- Fold the mixture on reverse speed 3 for 3-5 seconds.
- Spoon the mixture into well prepared muffin tins (or cases) until they are just over half full.
- Pop half a cherry tomato into the top of each muffin.
- Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown on top.
- Allow to cool before turning out.
I hope you enjoy them and if you come up with any other great flavour combinations do let me know.
Haha, you’ve got to love little food critics! These look great and I know my boys would love them.
Ha, I bet my 4-year-old would request no tomato on top, too 🙂 At least we can offer… These sound great and I’m with you on doubling the recipe. So nice to have some back-ups in the freezer to be able to pull out!
Made these today for lunch boxes this term – they turned out beautifully. Thanks!
Omg these are delicious, so glad a doubled the mix as per your suggestion. I also sweated some spinach and added that at the start with the bacon. Very yummy, Thankyou for a great recipe
YUM!! I love mine with spinach too but my kids are way too fussy and complain about the ‘green bits’!! So glad you enjoyed them 🙂
Can these muffins be frozen and then pulled out and straight into their lunchboxes to defrost for lunch?
Hi Naomi, Yes you certainly can. I do it all the time for my kids lunch boxes :))
Tattoos were covered up, Rosacea, birth marks – it seemed to be able to do a
fantastic job at covering without actually looking like makeup.
Now gently rub it on the scar in circular motion before rinsing with
cold water. Let’s face it, acne products aren’t cheap and they aren’t something you use one time either.
Tasty. Added chives, left over ham, garlic and 1/2 teas of paprika yummy
My 8yo requested that i add capsicum, mushrooms and tomatoes. They were delicious.

Delicious! Unfortunately the mix stuck very firmly to the paper patty pans, any ideas to prevent this? I sprayed with olive oil spray
