Savoury Corn Bacon Muffins

This is my second attempt at making savoury muffins.  On my first attempt, I baked them in paper cups   and there were not much to be savoured as much of them got stuck onto the paper.  Had to scrape the crumbs off the paper in order to get more bite.  So, today I just lightly greased the patty tins and after baking, they could be easily dislodged.  Had them with some green tomato chutney made with brown sugar, compliments from my neighbour and they were delicious ........ a hearty meal.






second attempt, baked in patty tins without the paper cups







first try, with paper cups, much of the muffins got stuck onto the paper












Yummy, straight from the oven and served with some chutney.  The tangy green tomato chutney made a nice accompaniment for the slightly savoury muffins.
