I have wanted to start this blog long time ago and always found excuse – mainly I have no time, which is not strictly true as I have plenty of time to watch some rubbish TV. So from today for a month I’ll post one dish or meal I had on the day. So there will be 30 dishes coming on your way 🙂 Also I try to use one ingredient from my cupboard, which have been hiding behind everything too long.
Ttoday the first thing I found was cornmeal and with cup of tea some Bacon – Chilli muffins sounded perfect for me.
350 grams of plain yogurt + 100 grams of soured cream (can be all one or other, it was combination I founded from my fridge)
50 g butter
65 g plain flour
2 tsp or maybe less if bacon is salty
1 tsp biocarbonate of soda
275g cornmeal (I used fine one)
4 rashers of bacon
1tsp chilli flakes or use fresh chilli if you preffer
First grill or fry bacon and crumble it to small pieces. Whisk 2 eggs in a big bowl then add yogurt or sour cream or both. Add also melted butter and whisk everything together. Sift flour, salt and soda together and add to the mixture. Then add cornmeal gradually, crumbled bacon and chilli flakes. 1tsp chilli flakes makes quite hot muffins so add bit less if you want them bit milder.
Grease muffin tray with bacon fat left over from cooking or with bit of oil. Fill to about 3/4 with the muffin mixture and bake on Gas Mark 6/ 200C for 20 minutes.
I enjoyed them with roasted onion cream cheese and Red onion chutney and delicious it was!
UPDATE! Our Labrador Lonni has finished them off as we left them stupidly on the table. Mhm…how the digestion goes with this chilli – burned bum me thinks 🙂
