Mini Sweetcorn, Bacon and Chive Frittatas

This recipe was sent in with kind permission by Fi Bird.
I love that it uses baking for a the kind of comfort food which would normally be fried.

Ingredients
Makes 12
Oil for greasing
4 rashers back bacon
1 heaped tablespoon sweet corn
1 tablespoon grated cheese
6 eggs
150ml milk
Freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon chives




Put the oven on 200C Fan180C Gas 6
1.  Oil a 12 muffin mould tray.
2.  Grill the bacon and cut it into bite sized pieces.
3.  Drain the sweet corn and mix it in a bowl with the bacon
4.  Use the dessert spoon to divide the sweet corn and bacon, between the muffin moulds.
5.  Sprinkle a little of the cheese into each muffin tin.
6.  Crack the eggs into a large mixing jug. Whisk the eggs using a balloon whisk or fork and
     then whisk in the milk.
7.  Season with ground pepper and pour the mixture equally into the muffin moulds.
8.  Snip the chives into very small pieces with scissors, and sprinkle a little on top of each
     mould.
9.  Put the tray into the oven and bake for 10 minutes or until the frittatas have set*.
10. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, and then loosen them off with a palette knife and turn them
     out.
 

They are yummy hot and delicious cold in a lunch boxes too. You can test that the frittata has set by sticking a skewer in it should come out clean.

Frozen Banana Crunch Popsicles This is a fun alternative to an ice lolly, with a portion of fruit shoehorned in. We found it on Baking Bites and there are clear instructions there on how to make it. Because the banana is frozen and has a sweetened crunchy coating it feels more of a treat. We have also seen versions using crushed up Special K type cereals - especially good are the ones with the berries as you get little flakes of chewy red in the coating. You can use a pes...
