Do you know the Muffin Man?
The Muffin Man.
The Muffin Man….
I have a serious love of muffins. They are like perfectly portioned little gifts. Muffins can be sweet or savory. They are easy to freeze. Muffins can be mini, regular, or just the tops. In short, muffins are… perfect!
The other day I made Celebration Stuffed Chicken Breasts and ended up with leftover stuffing. What’s a girl to do with her extra stuffing, you ask?
I’ll tell you!…
MAKE STUFFIN’ MUFFINS!!!!!!!! The concept is as simple as the recipe. These muffins are perfect for a buffet style Thanksgiving meal. Stuffin’ Muffins are also delicious cold, which makes them a delightfully healthy lunch box treat! Plus, they are fun!
*A WARNING- You are about to see pictures of my sad looking bakeware. I use bakeware that was my Great Grandmothers. I’m being serious! I really do! It has been scoured and scrubbed and is 100% Gluten Free. BUT, this bakeware definitely looks like it belonged to my Great Grandmother. Don’t judge. Embrace the nostalgia! 🙂
– leftover Stuffing
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray a muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Spoon leftover Stuffing into the muffin tin and pack firmly. (This will help the muffin stay together. Don’t be timid. Firmly press that little guy into place!)
Bake 25-30 minutes, until done.
Allow to cool 10 minutes in the pan. (Otherwise they will fall apart!)
GF Guy and I have enjoyed Stuffin’ Muffins for the last 2 Thanksgivings. Thanksgiving foods remind us of the spirit of that holiday. We are so blessed right now that every day feels like Thanksgiving in our house. Why not promote that same feeling in your own household. Thanksgiving in August, everyone! With school starting up again, it feels like a time of new beginnings. Let’s all make the most of it!
As this new school year begins, what are you most thankful for?
* In blog news:
Thank you for your feedback concerning my blog. I added a search widget on the right side just above the Post Archive. I am also in the process of adding Labels to each post. If you click on an “Entree” label, for example, all posts labeled “Entree” will appear for your perusal, etc….. Again, thanks for the feedback. It is VERY helpful! I’m sort of technologically challenged, to say the least! Give me a kitchen any day, but spare me the keyboard!
Have a fabulous day everyone! I am thankful for each and every one of you!
