Muffin Tin Madness...

Let's get crazy people. Muffin tins have been my go to dish lately. They provide perfect portions and easy clean up so hey why not?

Pepperoni Pizza Balls: You will need 1 can of Grands Jr Biscuits, 1 package of pepperoni (I used turkey pepperoni), shredded mozzarella, and pizza sauce for dipping.

Step 1) Spray muffin tin with cooking spray
Step 2) Use kitchen scissors to cut the biscuits into four pieces
Step 3) Cut pepperoni into small pieces
Step 4) Put 3 biscuit pieces your hand. Flatten them out a little bit.
Step 5) Put pepperoni then cheese on top of the 3 biscuits in your hand
Step 6) Place the forth biscuit pieces on top and roll all ingredients into a ball
Step 7) Place into muffin tin. I sprinkled Mrs. Dash: Garlic and Herb on top of the pizza balls

Step 8) Bake at 350 for 15-17 minutes
Step 9) Dip in warm pizza sauce

Mini Cherry Cheesecakes: You will need-Butter, Eggs, Vanilla Wafers, Cream Cheese, Sugar, Vanilla, Cherry Pie Filling, and Cupcake Liners.

Crust-I took half a box of crushed vanilla wafers and mixed them with melted butter. I started with one tablespoon of butter and added a little bit more until the crumbs would stick together. Scoop this mixture into regular sized cupcake liners and mash it down with your fingers to create the crust of the cheesecake.

Cheesecake-MAKE SURE CREAM CHEESE IS AT ROOM TEMP or it will clump. Mix 2 packages of 8 ounce cream cheese with 3/4 cup of sugar, 3 eggs, 1 tsp vanilla, a dash of lemon zest and 1 Tbsp lemon juice (I just squeezed the lemon i used for the zest) in a large mixing bowl.

Scoop the mixture on top of the crust in the lined muffin tin. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Once cool spoon cherry pie filling on top and cool in the fridge. Enjoy!

Chicken Pot Pies: I fell in love with these little beauties.

You will need:
  • 2 cans of Grands Jr. Biscuits
  • 1 can of Cream of Chicken Soup 
  • 2 cups of cooked diced chicken 
  • 1 cup frozen mixed veggies 
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • 1/2 Tablespoon of dried thyme
  • 1/2 Tablespoon of dried basil 
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder 
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt 

Step 1) Place the Grands Jr. Biscuits into each muffin cup and mush the dough down so moves up the sides.
Step 2) In a large bowl, mix the chicken, cream of chicken soup, veggies, cheese and spices
Step 3) Evenly spoon out the mixture into each cup
Step 4) Bake at 400 for about 15 minutes
