Quick and Easy Savory Muffins

Are you looking for a quick and easy recipe for savory muffins? Look no further. 

I wanted to knock up some nice savory muffins a few mornings ago for breakfast and I wanted it to be quick and easy. No more than 30 minutes from start to finish. 
I did what anyone would do...Google, but sadly there was nothing I liked, so I decided to make up my own recipe! This was the results and they were delicious! 

Here is my recipe:


  • 2 cups (500g) self-raising flour
  • 1 cup (250g) grated cheddar cheese (or any tasty hard cheese)
  • 1 packet of smoked bacon cut in cubes
  • 150g butter, melted
  • 1 cup (250ml) milk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • Fresh herbs (I used fresh rosemary from my garden - finely cut )
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a 12 cup muffin tray with muffin sized papers. 
Mix the self-raising flour, salt, cheese, bacon, herbs together. In a jug combine the egg, milk and 
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
Pour into prepared muffin pan and bake for 15-20 minutes.

Quick and Easy Savory Muffins

What is Pink Ostrich?

My blog is three years old! Well three and a bit and the time has come to let this baby grow up! I started out as Wyni's Kitchen and brought you all the recipes I have tried and loved, some my own some passed down to me. I shared my cakes and how I made it as well as handy tricks and tips. 

Three years down the line and I still love my kitchen and spending time in it. I also like sharing it with you! My blog has changed a bit now and includes more of what I do, not just recipes and cakes, but my other passion too....

My dream has always been to create, to make beautiful things with my hands and share them with all of you! This is the start of my dream..

I started Pink Ostrich because I have always had a big passion for designing and creating beautiful things with my hands. I can even say it is in my blood! My great-great grandmother was a great wedding cake designer, my paternal grandmother owned her own bakery and my grandmother designed the most beautiful clothes and wedding dresses! 
I knew I had a creative talent, but I kept it hidden for fear of failure! How many of us do that? We are so scared to take a chance on something or to start a new venture because we are scared we will fail. Failure is inevitable sometimes, but if you don't try you will never know what it is to succeed!

“Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor.” Truman Capote

That is why I am taking my lamp out from under my bucket and I am letting my little light shine! I am no longer hiding my talent. I am born to design, born to create... It's in my blood! It's in me!

Do what you love, love what you do!

My love for making unique baby mobiles and nursery décor came with the birth of my second baby 
almost two years ago. I searched and searched for something unique and handmade to hang over his crib and to tie the whole theme together. I could not find anything I liked and decided to give it a go myself. I was hooked! Before I knew it I was designing and making baby mobiles and nursery décor for friends and family. I loved it, they loved it. I hope you will too.

Every piece I make is made with love and care. I hope you will enjoyed it as much as I enjoy making it.

"Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. Matthew 5:15-16"
