Over 80 awesome foods you can make in a muffin tin... besides muffins. Yum.
If you’ve been hanging out with me for a while now, you know that I am slightly obsessed with baking things in muffin tins. We’re not talking muffins, just awesome foods that can be cooked in them. They are the perfect size for both cute and easy serving. Instead of just keeping this to myself, I wanted to summon the help of some blog friends to collect a delicious selection of amazing recipes for myself ahem.. you. First, we’ll start off with some mouth watering savory dishes, then straight on to dessert. Then, no muffin tin recipe compilation would be complete without a delicious selection of breakfast recipes. Don’t you agree?

    Gosh, there are so many to try. My kids love beignets yet I don’t like to fry things. I’m going to give this one a whirl!

  2. says

    That is the absolute coolest! I love this idea. Now I can make meals that are easy, fun, and make great portable leftovers for my husband to take to work with him.

  3. says

    How cool! This is the perfect answer to meals for me. With these recipes, I can make a great dinner and then send off the leftovers with my husband to work. The same goes for my daughter when she’s school aged.

  4. says

    Wow, apparently I use my muffin tin far too little! So many awesome ideas. I want to try the heart of darkness brownies.

  5. Pam says

    The only thing that makes good food better is MINI versions of it! I’m definitely making several of these recipes!
