3 – Let it cool down.

Batter:

1 – Place eggs, oil and milk into a blender and mix for 2 minutes.

2 – Add flour, corn starch, salt, pepper and cheese and pulse until well blended.

3 – Put the batter into the cupcake pan, filling it to 1/3.

4 – Add 1 tbs filling to each pie.

Tips:

  • Instead of sausage, you can use ground beef or chicken breast with bacon.
  • Make the recipe even healthier, by adding different vegetables in the filling, such as carrots, zucchini and broccoli.
  • Corn starch makes the batter/dough lighter, but if you don’t want to use it, change the quantity of all-purpose flour for 2 cups.
  • On the other hand, if you want to make this recipe gluten free, replace all-purpose flour for 2 cups corn starch.
