Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C or 180°C fan-forced. Line two 12-hole (1 tablespoon/20ml) mini muffin tins with paper cases. Combine polenta and milk in a bowl. Set aside for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, lightly spray a small non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over medium-high heat. Cook bacon, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add shallots and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Remove pan from heat. Cool for 5 minutes.
