1. Breakfast Burrito Bites from Ella Claire
Muffin tin recipes don’t have to be limited to dinners! These breakfast burrito bites use a tortilla as a base, keeping all of the yummy ingredients easily contained.

2. Chicken Pot Pie Cupcakes from Sunny Slide Up
Comfort food in a muffin tin-sized portion is the perfect way to recreate this family favorite for your kids.

3. Deep Dish Pizza Cupcakes from Plain Chicken
We could all use a new twist on pizza, right moms? Try making pizzas in muffin tins the next time your kids are begging for pizza delivery.

4. Lasagna Cupcakes from The Girl Who Ate Everything
Lasagna is time consuming to make… unless you use muffin tins! This recipe uses wonton wrappers instead of lasagna noodles, which is a delicious — and easy — swap.

5. Mac and Cheese Muffins with Wisconsin Cheddar Cheese from Hip Foodie Mom
However you make mac and cheese at home, try making it in muffin tins. We love this recipe because it doesn’t skimp on what we love most about mac and cheese just because the portions have been sized-down.

6. Meatloaf Cupcakes from Six Sisters’ Stuff
Your kids may not eat meatloaf when you make it in the traditional way, but we guarantee that they will devour these little meatloaf cupcakes.

7. Mini Cheesy Corn Dog Muffins from Cooking with Mel
These corn dog muffins are a great idea for weekend lunches and using cheese-filled hot dogs is a twist that your kids will adore. Pass the ketchup!

8. Omelet Breakfast Bites from A Mitten Full of Savings
Another yummy muffin tin recipe that’s perfect for breakfast, you can adapt this recipe to include your family’s favorite omelet ingredients or customize different muffin tin cups for different palettes.

9. Sloppy Joe Cups from Recipe by Photo
Make that not-so-sloppy-joes! These will save you a ton of post-meal clean-up, since the sloppy part of the joes is contained in a muffin tin.

10. Easy Six-Layer Baked Taco Cups from Averie Cooks
Fun for dinner or for an appetizer, taco cups are such a fun twist on your traditional taco night and you can even let your kids add their own toppings!

Do you make any of your recipes in a muffin tin?
