Today I’m very excited to show you three clever ways that muffin tins can make your morning a little more delicious
what I love about using muffin tins in the kitchen is that all of the food comes out pre-portioned and extra portable which is great for busy people on the go and the best part about all three of these recipes is that they are entirely gluten-free so today I’m going to get started by showing you my spinach tomato and goat cheese frittatas the beautiful potato rosti with sour cream and chives and finally my almond breakfast bites that are excellent on the go alright
So let’s get started with our frittata so I’ve got my greased muffin tin standing by and my oven preheated to 350 degrees in a measuring cup I’m going to whisk together some eggs a nice splash of milk you can totally leave the milk out of this recipe but I find it makes for a nice fluffy frittata some garlic powder some salt and some pepper and some work so then we are just going to give this a nice whisk in our measuring cup in my muffin tins I’m going to layer some chopped spinach some cherry tomatoes that I’ve just cut in half and finally some goat cheese now if you don’t like goat cheese you can definitely replace it in this recipe with some mozzarella or even some white cheddar would work just.
As well I’m going to fill my muffin tins with my egg mixture you’re looking to fill your tins about 3/4 of the way full into the oven these are going to go for between 15 and 20 minutes or until they’re completely set once they’re finished baking they are ready to eat or you can store them in your refrigerator for two to three days and just grab them as you head out the door in the morning next step I’m excited to show you my tasty potato rosti is with sour cream and chives for this recipe you could use all traditional potatoes or all sweet potatoes but I really prefer a combination of the both now all I’ve done is peel potatoes and then shredded them now I did this in my food processor with a shredding blade but you could totally do this by hand using a box grater and a little bit of elbow grease now the most important step in making a good potato rosti is to be sure to drain all of the water from your potatoes today I’m doing this using just a clean kitchen towel and all.
I’m going to do is squeeze out all of the excess moisture now this is really important if you want to have a nice crispy outside on your roast a with a soft yummy middle once the potatoes are ready all we’re going to do is drizzle them with a little bit of olive oil some garlic powder and some salt and pepper keep in mind that you can season these any way you like you could use some Greek seasoning or some Italian seasoning some chili powder and cumin would be really yummy but today I’m keeping it very simple now that this is all well combined we are going to scoop the mixture into our greased muffin tin you want to make sure you’re greasing your muffin tin very well because you don’t look these guys sticking once you filled your muffin tin you’re going to press the potatoes into the pan and leave little reservoir in each that’s where our sour cream and chives are going to go.
We’re going to bake these at 375 degrees for between 30 and 40 minutes once your roast Eze are ready you can tuck them with sour cream in this case I mix my sour cream with some salt and pepper and a little bit of onion powder we’re just gonna finish these off with some chopped chives and how amazing do these look finally on today’s menu I’m excited to share my recipe for my almond breakfast bites these are really easy to put together and they’re no fake so they all come together actually in your freezer we are going to be using our food processor to pull some raw almonds and some sunflower seeds what we’re looking for is a coarse crumb mixture next we are going to head to the stove to heat up some almond butter and some honey you really could use any sort of nut butter that you want and you could replace the honey with maple syrup or agave if you wanted to keep these totally vegan we’re going to heat this mixture up over medium-low heat until it’s smooth and pliable next in our Bowl we are going to combine our almond mixture with some raisins and some dried cranberries then we are going to pour in our almond butter mixture and then while it’s still warm you really just want to work it in to your own hands it is very likely that you are going to need your hands for this job so just give them a good wash and don’t be afraid to get in there next we are going to press our mixture into our muffin tin now I’m using muffin tins that I’ve lined with these parchment cupcake liners I absolutely love
These because nothing sticks to them and they make these breakfast bite extra portable you may have to scoop a couple times and keep pressing until you filled your muffin tins completely then you can just put these guys in freezer for 20 to 30 minutes once they’re set you can eat them right away
