Muffin Tin Wonders

I was inspired by the recent issue of Everyday Food
They had a section on non-muffin uses for muffin cups.
I'm not sure why I liked it so much...but why not?
Here is the line up:

Bacon-Egg-Toast Cups
My toast got a bit crunchy, but they were good. Despite the appearance the yolk is not runny.
 The kids struggled a little, but it was our first muffin tin wonder.
Maybe if they were sprinkled with some cheese...

Mini Deep Dish Pizzas 
(aka Pizza Muffins)

These were delicious! A perfect serving size for the kids.
They don't use sauce, just pieces of tomato...mmm!!!
Perhaps next time I'll roll the dough a little thinner to fit more toppings in.

 Sugared Tortilla Fruit Cup Thingys

These were very yummy. I lightly sprayed tortillas with olive oil, sprinkled on a bit of sugar (both sides) and pressed into muffin cups. Bake, fill with yogurt and top with berries! The kids loved them, but they were pretty messy (maybe if I would have offered spoons...). 
I bet with out the sugar they would made great mini ensalada bowls!


  1. Those look good! Do you have to cook the bacon before putting it in the toast?

  2. Yes, pre-cook bacon. I saved some from the meal the night before. Not too crispy though, it will crisp up in the oven.
