This Gluten-Free Savoury Breakfast Muffin is a great grab-and-go option for busy mornings. While this is not your typical sweet muffin, it’s sure to satisfy that craving for something savoury.

These gluten-free hearty muffins are tasty and cheesy with a hint of smokiness from the bacon. All of the things some of us crave for breakfast. If you enjoy something with a spicy flavour, add hot sauce to the mix for some extra kick.

  • Combine mozzarella, bacon and onions. Stir half of the mixture into the batter. Pour batter evenly into the prepared muffin pan and top with remaining cheese mixture. Using your fingers press the mixture slightly into the batter
  • Bake for 33 - 35 minutes until the tops are golden brown. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer the muffins onto a rack to cool
