INTRODUCTION

The Muffin Pan Can

So how does a male dietitian come to write a cookbook devoted to muffin tins? Well, it started with a magazine assignment I was given a few years ago to develop several recipes using the trusty muffin tin with one big stipulation: no muffins! At that point, muffins were all I had ever used one for. However, as I started to research recipes, I quickly uncovered a plethora of savory and sweet possibilities. In fact, the muffin pan is a kitchen workhorse if there ever were one. Don’t let the name fool you; they’re good for much more than rustling up a batch of muffins or cupcakes. After the assignment, I found myself breaking out the can-do pans more and more often for everything from individual quiches to pancakes. Here’s why you should, too:

FAST AND FURIOUS. In many instances, cooking items in a muffin tin can significantly slash cooking time. Take mini meatloaves, for example. In a loaf pan, a meatloaf can take up to 1 hour to bake, but break up the portions into muffin cups and you can be feasting in half the time. Ditto for cakes and quick breads. This also helps cut down on energy usage, helping you save a few bucks and live a little greener.

BUILT-IN PORTION CONTROL. In a time when obesity is such a major concern, muffin tin meals are ideal for keeping portions in check. A recipe such as muffin-size frittatas may call for a cup of cheese (I mean, hey, isn’t everything better with cheese?), but when the portion is just two individual frittatas, suddenly your fat and calorie intake is well within reason so your waistline won’t bulge postprandial.

GREAT FOR KIDS. Preparing muffin-size items takes advantage of a child’s preference for easy-to-grab, hand-to-mouth eating. Personal-size treats such as pizza or mac ’n’ cheese are sure to be a hit at the dinner table and in the lunchroom. It’s also easy to sneak in a bunch of vegetables that tykes may not be too enthusiastic about eating. And you can get them involved in mixing the ingredients and filling the muffin cups.

ADAPTABLE AND PACKABLE. Compact and portable, muffin tin meals are more transportable than their full-size counterparts, making them ideal for lunch boxes, road trips, potlucks, and picnics.

LOOKS TO KILL. If you’re looking for an easy meal that will impress a group of family or friends, look no further! Adorable muffin tin meals and snacks are sure to be a conversation topic and make guests coo with delight.

FROZEN ASSETS. Stuck with extra chili, chicken broth, tomato paste, or pasta sauce? Instead of tossing these into a zip-top bag or plastic container where they’ll form a giant food ice cube, try dividing them into muffin tin compartments. They’ll freeze into individual portions that will defrost much quicker than a huge chunk of subzero food. Place items into the muffin cups, freeze until solid, unmold and then store in zip-top bags.

MY PERFECT DAY OF MUFFIN-SIZE EATING

If you asked me what my ideal day of noshing on muffin tin goodies would be, I would be in a state of edible bliss with this menu:

Breakfast: Peach Oatmeal Bake (page 23)

Morning Snack: Granola Rounds (page 37)

Lunch: Savory Smoked Salmon and Cheese Muffins (page 112)

Afternoon Snack: Seedy Rounds (page 38)

Dinner: Taco Cups (page 78)

Dessert: Extra-Moist Chocolate Cakes (page 122)

So you see, the muffin tin is undeniably a kitchenware overachiever. I hope you’ll join me in the muffin tin revolution.

Tools of the Trade

Obviously, if you’re going to give this book a good workout, you’ll need an arsenal of muffin tins. Today, there are more options than ever.

Silicone

Love them or hate them, food-grade silicone muffin cups have a number of things going for them. Virtually nonstick, silicone is a smart choice for items that may adhere with passion to your muffin cups, such as egg-based quiches and frittatas. This cuts down on the need for using paper liners and the waste they create, as well as
