Bacon & onion muffins

By on 26.11.12

These are bacon onion muffins topped with some black pepper. I made them quite a while ago. They are great as snacks or part of your lunch.

Sorry I haven’t posted anything last week! I’m so super busy these days.. Today is monday so it can count as last week’s post right?

I wanted to make a snack for in between meals. I really like the savory bread rolls which I made a couple of times, but sometimes you simply do not have time or patience to make bread dough. So muffins are a great alternative. Much quicker!

I didn’t use cheese or corn in these muffins, but the next time I’ll try adding that! It tastes great in the bread rolls so it can’t go wrong.. right?
