Did you know you can make all kinds of stuff in your muffin tins? It’s not just for cupcakes and muffins anymore! This latest craze has sparked many a Muffin Tin Monday for foodie bloggers out there. Like this fun round up of ideas from Handle the Heat. Also get some inspiration from these creative meals made in a muffin tin from Yummly. This post helped initially peak my interest before I started seeing double all over Pinterest.
So thanks to Pinterest I kept seeing these little muffin crazes everywhere and naturally I decided it was time for me to tackle some myself. I went a little muffin crazy this week and whipped up all kinds of stuff in them, like these – Sarah’s Crunchy Breakfast Cups (see image below). It’s so much fun!
But more importantly, it’s so easy and pretty darn cheap too.So all you moms, nannies, stay at home dad’s – whoever! Pay attention because these little muffin time masterpieces could be very useful if you have a lot of little mouths to feed – and those little mouths love them.
