Savoury Cheese and Bacon Muffins with spring onions and fresh dill, delicious and so easy to make, a great breakfast idea, or even a healthy snack in between meals. With summer just round the corner, why not pop some in your picnic basket. They make a good brunch too, and go down a treat with a cup of tea or coffee. The bacon can be replaced with ham, chicken or any other leftover meat.
