• Preheat the oven to 360F/180C

• Line muffin trays with half a slice of shoulder bacon or a trimmed rasher. There's no need to be precious. Just plonk it in

Tips From Easy Recipes

You can serve these:

  • as a winning appetizer, served on a bed of lettuce, rocket or baby spinach leaves
  • for mains - two or three little "pies" resting on a bed of mashed potatoes and steamed green vegetables
  • cold for lunch. It's ideal to pack as a school lunch
  • cold as an after school snack
  • on picnics

You'll work so much quicker with your recipes, with non-stick bake ware.  I prefer flexible silicone bake ware so as to eliminate the process of greasing and lining muffin trays. We have no time to waste, so, invest in silicone kitchenware.

Grow your own herbs - they really add flavor to meals.
