A savoury muffin filled with your favourite breakfast ingredients.


  • 3-4 slices bacon
  • 1 red pepper, finely diced
  • 1⁄4 cup chopped red or white onion
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1⁄2 tsp onion powder
  • 1⁄4 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup instant mashed potato flakes
  • 1⁄2 cup whole wheat flour or GF flour blend
  • 1 1⁄2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup (3 oz) shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Slice the bacon into small pieces and crumble fry in a frying pan until crispy.
  3. Meanwhile, chop the onion and red pepper, and grate the cheese. Set aside.
  4. In a mixing bowl whisk together the eggs. And milk, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt. Stir in potato flakes, flour and baking powder.
  5. Drain the excess bacon fat. Add bacon to the batter along with the chopped pepper, onion, and cheese.
  6. Grease and flour a 12 muffin cup tin. If you have a silicone muffin tin, use this as the eggs tend to stick to metal pans. Spoon in the batter to fill the 12 cups.
  7. Bake for 22 minutes.
