Bacon and Sweetcorn Breakfast Muffins

    35 min

    Delicious savoury muffins with bacon and pureed sweetcorn. Sometimes I switch the bacon for cooked ham and don't bother to puree the sweetcorn; they're very forgiving so use whatever your family prefers. These make for a delicious change for breakfast or packed lunches.

    Over all not a bad recipe. Makes tasty little muffins however I would recommend adding another piece of bacon and a little grated cheese to make them extra tasty and extra moist, but I guess it's just down to personal preference. Also the mix I made up made 15 muffins which was a bonus  -  03 Feb 2012


    My little boy loves these. He likes them with or without ham. I added abit of cheese to some of them. Easy recipe I would always puree the sweetcorn.  -  31 Jan 2013


    Great muffins. I did some modifications. I replaced the oil with applesauce and cut the sugar in half. Also used chopped ham on hand instead of bacon. Delcious savory muffins. A definite keeper.  -  30 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
