DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oven to 200C/400F/gas mark 6 and line a muffin tin with 12 paper cases.
  • Warm the oil over a medium heat and fry the bacon in it until just crisp.
  • Lift the bacon from the pan with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.
  • In the same fat, saute the onion until just softened, about 5 minutes, then set aside to cool.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt.
  • In a jug whisk the eggs, butter and buttermilk.
  • Stir them into the flour mixture with a spatula until just combined then fold in the cooled bacon, onion, chives (if using) and two-thirds of the cheese until just evenly distributed.
  • Spoon or scoop the mixture into the muffin tin, sprinkle on the rest of the cheese and bake for about 18 minutes until the tops are golden and a toothpick inserted into the centre of a muffin comes out clean.
