The Jolly Green Giant has been a part of both my and the mister’s lives since we were little. I loved watching the adverts and wondering if he would ever grace my garden’s corn-free vegetable patch, and the mister, well, his most vivid memory is listening to them in French every year on holiday on the TV in his family’s caravan, across the Channel.
Until about a year ago, although I’d heard of the Despicable Me Minions, I hadn’t got a clue about them – and then Minion mania hit our household, thanks to my parents. Whilst staying at Granny and Grandad’s home [where there is a large flat screen in the guest bedroom unlike our household where there is only one television, firmly fixed in the living room, for my apparently poor, screen time deprived little boys], they snuggled up one night and discovered the addictive hilarity of Stuart, Bob, Kevin, et al.
Months later they are still giggling nonsensically over the Minions’ crazy antics – and Tots100 have teamed up with The Jolly Green Giant to encourage energetic little Minion fans everywhere to put down their ba-na-nas and pick up some sweetcorn to enjoy as part of a tasty snack.
After interrogating two of the Jones Boys over the content of every Minion YouTube trailer, we decided on these – Sweetcorn and Bacon Minion Muffins. Those little Minions love bacon, and they need to refuel without risk of a huge sugar crash if they’re going to find the evil genius they’re seeking.
Here’s what you need to make your Green Giant Sweetcorn and Bacon Minion Muffins!
Ho-ho-ho…. Ba-na-na! Enjoy.
You can buy the little minion cases here:
What an awesome idea this is. My kids are going to love these. I can't wait to make this for them!
They were so simple to make and my boys actually enjoyed eating them as much as normal muffins!
Oh, the kids would love this- I'm sure the adults will, too! I will definitely have to add this onto my list of recipes to try, thanks so much!
My husband likes them 😉 It's such a simple recipe too!
Oh my gosh. Seriously, how cute is this?!? My kids would love it!
My boys just thought it was hilarious to eat minions!
This looks delicious. My little girls will love this. Can't wait to make this for them.
I'd love to see if you do! 🙂
What a cute idea and looks delicious as well. Will have to try this out one day. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Now these would make and awesome side with barbeque. I could get into these!
That's such a great idea! Thanks!
These are amazing!! Love the moulds x
Thank you! I got them on Amazon, they're called Muffin Tops!
Oh who doesn't love the minions? This is so cute and I'm sure they are yummy too! Where did you find the cute muffin holder?
Omg these sound so yummy!!! My daughter is minion obsessed so she would love these. Such a cute idea!
These are too cute! Reminds me of my son and how he gets into different shows and giggles about them later especially when I quote things from the show. 🙂
I find myself doing it now – I've turned into a Mum-minion!
I love corn muffins! What a great idea to put the corn muffin in the cute little minion pants!
My boys just loved the flavour of corn and bacon in a fluffy muffin! Thank you!
Haha – love how these are presented! No kids here but we might just make them for ourselves 🙂
I think you should! They are delicious!
My kids would love this recipe idea!! I need to find those muffin liners they look so neat!
They are on Amazon, called Muffin Tops! I hope you get to make them!
Adorable! This sure is a winner to kids and it looks good too!
I definitely have to try this one. Green Giant has always made an appearance both as I was growing up and now in my own apartment!
We grow our own too [my boys and I find it very exciting to grow something so fun], but Green Giant is our favourite brand by far!
These are so cute!! The idea makes me giggle. I swear I am a big kid. I want to eat these and stare at them haha. Thank you for this fun idea!
Lol, my kids love Minions too! Despicable me seems to never get old around here. I bet these wouldn't either! They look delicious.
I know! How long have they been around for? It feels like forever! They're here to stay I think!
Love that little muffin holders. So adorable! Minions are so darn popular right now.
How cute is this and love this recipe! I wish I could come through the screen and try one or two now!
I love sweet corn!
