Sick of cereal? Tired of toast?  Our bacon and cheese pots are the perfect antidote to breakfast blahs. 

These little pots of goodness are halfway between a muffin and a frittata so are light yet satisfying. 

Bake in pretty ramekins to impress your friends and family over brunch, or serve with a salad for a light and tasty lunch. 

You could also cook up a batch on the weekend for a healthy and delicious start to your working week – they’ll keep refrigerated for up to two days.
