Mummy’s Fast & Easy

Today’s recipe is one my favourite breakfast recipes, especially on a lazy Sunday morning.
Bacon & cheese polenta muffins – believe me, these taste great!
They’re easy to make – you only need a few ingredients.
You can’t go wrong with bacon & cheese, can you!:-)
I think polenta is so fast with melted cheese so I use polenta and just a bit of flour for this recipe.

Here’s what you need.


  • 150g/3.5oz polenta
  • 50g/2oz white flour
  • 6 bacon strips
  • 150g/3.5oz mild cheddar cheese, sliced/grated
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 a cup of yogurt
  • 2tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 1tsp salt
  • 1tbsp dry thyme

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/392°F.
  2. In a bowl, combine the polenta, flour, salt and baking powder and mix.
  3. Add the eggs, oil and yogurt and work the mixture with a hand mixer to a thick consistency.
  4. Form a small ball, place the cheese slices in the middle and wrap it up with the bacon strip. Do the same with the rest of the mixture.
  5. Place the muffins in a silicone mould and bake for about 30 minutes or until ready.
  6. Sprinkle the dry thyme and serve hot!
Tip: Try adding some maple syrup on top of the muffins just before you serve them. Tastes delicious!:-)
