3 Yummy Muffin Tin Mini Meals

Did you know that muffin tins serve more of a purpose than just for baking cupcakes and muffins? You can make perfectly proportioned mini meals in a jiffy using this common kitchen dish. These are also fun to use when you have smaller children as they make the perfect proportions for them as well!
Here are 3 of my favorite muffin tin meals using a 6 cup muffin tin:

Ham & Egg Cups
  • 6 whole eggs
  • 6 slices thick ham
  • Salt/Pepper to taste
  1. Grease muffin tin.
  2. Place one piece of ham in each tin.
  3. Crack one egg into each ham slice.
  4. Sprinkle salt/pepper to taste.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees until eggs are cooked to your liking. (I like mine all the way baked so it usually takes 15 minutes)

Meatloaf Muffins
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp oregano
  • 1 cup Annies Organic Ketchup 
  • salt/pepper to taste

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, combine all ingredients except for the ketchup, mixing well. 
  3. Pack mixture into each of the muffin tin slots.
  4. Bake muffins for 20 minutes or until beef is browned. Top each muffin with 1 tsp of Annie's organic ketchup.
  5. Place back into the oven for ten more minutes. Take out and let sit for 10 minutes. Enjoy!

Mini Tacos
  • 1 package wonton wrappers
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 3 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tbsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp cumin
  • shredded lettuce, shredded cheddar cheese, chopped tomatoes-for topping (optional)
  1. In a skillet heated over Medium, brown ground beef. Drain.
  2. Add in seasonings and mix well. Set aside.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees,
  4. Place two wonton wrappers in each tin cup of the muffin pan. (It is okay for the corners to point upward)
  5. Spoon ground beef mixture into each cup.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes until corners of the wonton wrappers are golden brown. Remove from oven.
  7. Top with your favorite toppings.
