Savoury Muffins – a different breakfast to start your day.  

These muffins make a great savoury start to the day. You’ll love them.  With eggs, cheese, bacon, carrot and basil they pack a nutritious kick.  But I have to say, they’re also great for a mid-morning snack or to prevent the mid-arvo slump.

So easy to make and gluten-free too.
