There’s way more uses for your muffin tin than you originally thought, and if, like me, you’ve only been using it to make muffins this entire time, you’ve been missing out.
In fact, you can make breakfast, lunch and dinner only using a muffin in if you’d like. Everything from mini-pancakes to mini-pizzas can be made in your handy-dandy tin.
There’s really no reason not to use your muffin tin to make just delicious meals because it makes cooking and clean-up super easy. Not to mention, everything’s cuter in mini-version!
