How to make bacon muffins

With Farmhouse Breakfast Week just around the corner, Ladies in Pigs share their recipe for yummy bacon muffins!

Farmhouse Breakfast Week is one of our most favourite foodie weeks of the year – a whole five days dedicated to the most important meal of the day! A healthy, filling dish packed full of fuel and nutrients is just what you need to start the day. After all, we've all heard the saying “Breakfast like a King, lunch like a Prince and dinner like a Pauper”. 

Due to high demand, we've decided to run a second Farmhouse Breakfast Week this year, with one taking place in January and another in November. On 12, 14 and 16 November, school children will take part in a fun-filled morning of activities at the Showground. Pupils will be given the opportunity to get hands-on by making their own tasty breakfast snacks, exploring in a real tractor and learning all about the most important meal of the day – breakfast!

Ladies in Pigs will be joining the children and making delicious bacon muffins, they have shared their recipe with us.
