Corn and Bacon Muffins (makes 12)

Postby mary_in_adelaide » Sat Jan 13, 2007 5:32 am

I posted this in a breakfast thread but then realised I should have put it here :oops:

These are yummy muffins that I make a batch of and freeze then take 1 or 2 for brekky or a snack (1min in the old microwave).

Cooking Spray
1 1/4 cups Self raising flour (white)
1 cup Self raising flour (wholemeal)
200 grams Corn kernels defrosted or drained
3 rashers Bacon Rashers (Weigh Watchers brand) diced
1 tablespoon Fresh parsley chopped
1 tablespoon Fresh chives chopped
1 teaspoon Dried dill
1 teaspoon Dried oregano
1 teaspoon Dried basil
1 1/4 cups Skim milk
1/4 cup Low Fat Cottage Cheese
1/4 cup Low Fat plain yoghurt
100 grams Cheese (Coon Extra Light) grated
1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese grated

Preheat oven to 180°C. Spray a muffin tray with Cooking Spray.

Sift flours together into a large bowl. Add corn, bacon and all herbs and spices.

Place all other ingredients into a blender and mix well.

Fold the liquid mixture into the flour mixture and stir well to combine.

Pour into muffin tray and bake for 25-30 minutes.

NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION PER MUFFIN: Fat 2.5g, Cals 142
Cheers, Mary

If I could find a ticker for measurements it would say I'm on the way from a waist measurement of 134cm to one of 70cm (currently at 129cm)

I have a 'savoury tooth' zeedeveelgirl (couldn't care less if I never eat another chocolate but I could be on the national potato chip eating team if there was one) so I've decided that one of the ways I need to tackle this weight loss journey is to have lots of relatively healthy savoury snacks on hand :D

That's a great idea! I have a bit of both - neither are particularly strong, like they don't drive me crazy with me craving something either sweet or savoury a lot, but very ocassionally I'll get a strong craving for something!
Have you tried the Sakata Apero snacks? Oh they are SO delicious, and the kilojoules are pretty damn low!! Definitely low enough for you to have a small serving when you fancy something savoury!
