Stuffing Muffin Cups Recipe for Kids

This is a perfect way to serve up stuffing to kids  or even adults, whether it’s for Thanksgiving, a special meal or a regular week night- foods cooked in muffin tins are just so much cuter.  And hey we love stuffing so they are going to go fast.

If you have a favorite stuffing recipe you can also follow your recipe and bake them in muffin tips.  The only tip would be to make sure the stuffing has some moisture and an ingredient to hold them together (ex. egg) but that they aren’t too wet to stay together.  Otherwise most any stuffing recipe should bake up nicely in the muffin tins.

We also love the stuffing muffin cups for left over stuffing because you can just pop one out to eat with a meal or freeze them in individual portion sizes.
