This cheese and bacon muffins Thermomix recipe is perfect for kids lunch boxes or for an on-the-go breakfast.
I am always experimenting with different muffins recipes as they are so useful to have for kids lunch boxes, picnics or snacks. These savoury muffins with bacon and cheese are a real hit with my daughter.
The flavor of the cheese is pretty mild in these savoury muffins, so they are perfect for fussy eaters. If you prefer to make the cheese flavor stronger, you could adjust the parmesan / cheddar ratio to have more parmesan, which has a stronger flavor.
How to make Thermomix Cheese & Bacon Muffins
Like most Thermomix muffin recipes, this recipe is quick and easy and just requires you to follow step by step.
One thing that differs is that this recipe for cheese bacon muffins suggests that you cook the bacon in a frying pan.
If you prefer to cook the bacon in the Thermomix too, I would suggest you grate the cheese first and set aside, then cook the bacon (5 minutes / 100 degrees / speed 1). Then set the bacon aside and wipe out the bowl with a paper towel before you melt the butter.
Because you need to wait for the butter to cool a little before you add the milk and eggs, I prefer to use this time to cook the bacon separately in a frying pan.
I also like to use an ice-cream/cookie scoop to divide the muffin mixture into the muffin cases. This is not only quicker and easier, but is a great way to ensure you get an equal amount of mixture into each muffin case.
Can you freeze savoury cheese and bacon muffins?
Yes you can. These muffins freeze really well. Once they are cool, I put them into a freezer bag and put them in the freezer. Try to use them within a month.
For my kids' lunch boxes, I pop in a muffin when still frozen, and they are defrosted and ready to eat by lunchtime.
