Top tips:

  • Use a different type of cheese such as red Leicester, Stilton, or feta.
  • Add chopped red, yellow and green peppers, sliced mushrooms, fresh spinach (wilted first) or chopped beetroot.
  • Add sliced cooked new potatoes.
  • Add chopped cooked meat, chicken or fish.
  • Try a variety of fresh or dried herbs and spices.
  • For something different, line the muffin tin with slices of ham or cooked chicken and then add the filling. Cook in the same way.
