    Cheese and Bacon Mini Muffins

    These little mouthfuls are perfect to serve with drinks, canapé style. Sandwiching them together with creamy Boursin adds flavour and is a pleasing contrast to the crumbly texture of the muffins.

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 35 minutes 35 minutes

    Makes: 24


    • 75g Waitrose British Smoked Streaky Bacon, roughly chopped
    • 300g plain flour
    • 2 tsp baking powder
    • 25g Valsugana Polenta (cornmeal)
    • 1 tsp caster sugar
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 150g pack Garlic and Herb Boursin
    • 1 medium egg, beaten
    • 300ml milk
    • 50g Olivio, melted, plus extra for greasing
    • 25g Cheddar, finely grated


    1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Grease two 12 hole mini muffin tins with a little Olivio.
    2. Cook the bacon in a non-stick frying pan for 3-4 minutes until golden.
    3. Drain on kitchen paper.
    4. Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl and stir in the cornmeal, sugar, salt and cooked bacon. Crumble in half of the Boursin. Crack the egg into a separate bowl and whisk in the milk and melted Olivio.
    5. Stir the liquid into the dry ingredients, taking care not to over mix. Divide the mixture between the mini muffin tins, scatter with the grated Cheddar and bake for 15 minutes or until well risen and just firm.
    6. Allow to cool, cut in half horizontally then sandwich together with the remaining Boursin.
