Muffin tins can be useful for more than just baking cupcakes. Use them to make single servings of everything from meatloaf to egg frittatas. Simply fill the wells in the pan with whatever you need to bake and turn out individual portions. Use mini muffin tins for hors d’oeuvres to produce small bites.
This concept also works well for freezing. Pour sauces, soups, or even cooked oatmeal into the muffin tins, allow them to freeze until solid, and pop them out and store them in a freezer safe zip lock bag until needed.
What could be easier?
