Scrumpy Scroodles

A NZ south island tradition these delicious little scrumpy scroodle morsels are great for parties, can be made ahead of time and freeze well.

Does anyone know where the name came from?

While 2 tablespoons soup mix may seem a waste, don’t be tempted to use the whole sachet as the flavour becomes too overpowering.


  • 250g sour cream
  • 1/2 cup chopped bacon
  • 1 cup grated tasty cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Maggi onion soup mix
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley


Preheat the oven to 180 C (350 F).  Grease the cups of 1-2 mini muffin trays (recipe makes 20).
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.  Spoon into the mini muffin cups and bake for 20 minutes until puffed and golden.

These can be served cold but are best when warm.
