Meaty muffins

I found a new muffin recipe to make.
The ingredients were all natural and so easy to bake
But if only they had said
Finding the ingredients  would fill me with dread.


  1. Free range eggs
  2. Stoneground flour
  3. Home cured bacon
  4. Cows Milk


  1. Collect the free range eggs 
  2. Grind the flour
  3. Catch the pig 
  4. Milk the cow
  5. Mix them altogether

It was that last instruction that I got wrong….

I couldn’t find the eggs so I figured I could just add the chicken  (after all what came first the chicken or the eggs really?)
The wheat didn’t ripen but the stalks could be ground with stones (added texture)
That bacon didn’t cure but I just whipped the pig into the mix  (no squealing involved)
I found it easier to just add the cow rather than milk it first (in case it kicked the bucket)

Finally it was ready to prepare
An amazing mixture without compare
Though the chopping, whipping and stirring was quite a chore.
But such a meaty muffin you never saw before.
