These little gems are crispy on the outside, slightly gooey on the inside and utterly delicious!
I like to use a smoked bacon as it gives more flavour.
Makes 48-60 mini muffin sized puffs. Leftover batter happily lives in the fridge for 48hours.
350g tapioca flour
170g Cheddar, grated
A pinch of cayenne pepper
A little salt
Over a high heat, fry the bacon until crispy and the fat has rendered.
Spoon the cooked bacon onto some absorbent kitchen towel and squeeze to get as much fat out as you can.
Place the bacon in a food processor and pulse to create bacon crumbs.
Now add all of the remaining ingredients and whizz to form a thick batter.
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Centigrade.
Grease 2 x 24 hole mini muffin tin, I just use the fat from the bacon!
Fill the muffin hole to two thirds and pop the tin in the oven.
Bake for 15-18 minutes.
Depending on the size of your muffin tins you may have batter leftover, you can repeat the above or cover and keep it in the fridge, it will last 48 hours.
