Muffin Tin Cooking

Anything you bake - sweet or savoury - you can make in a muffin tin. They are great for life on the road because one muffin tin fits nicely into a toaster oven; two fit into the AS oven.

I don't like to fuss with "a lot of" something when Airstreaming. A big hunkin' meatloaf or lasagna - it's a bother. Little bits seem to work so much better (and any leftovers are a lot easier to store. These tasty little morsels below - you probably won't have any leftover, period!)

Have been doing a lot of muffin tin experimentation. My latest is something I call "Granny on the Road." My English granny used to make something called "Toad 'n the Hole." Sausages in a Yorkshire Pudding base. As kids, it was our favourite Saturday night supper. Gran used to make it in a big Pyrex dish. I don't even think the dish she used would fit into the AS oven. I have adapted it for a muffin tin, and it tastes just as good. It is a great breakfast in the great outdoors. You can also serve it for lunch or dinner with a salad.

If anyone would like the recipe, tell me here, and I will post. It's an easy recipe. I can see them in a bucket at a rally potluck!

Here you go, my Airstream friends:

FaN's Muffin Tin Toad 'n the Hole

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 - 1/2 tsp. dried savory
pinch salt
1 cup milk
3 eggs
12 links of your favourite sausage (I like maple pork)
Vegetarians can use the faux sausage
Peanut, canola, or vegetable oil

Two muffin tins. For muffin-tin cooking I use the tins with the jumbo-sized cups, but you can use the regular sized ones if you'd like

Method:
In bowl, stir together the flour, savory and salt. Whisk milk with eggs; gradually whisk into flour mixture until smooth. Let stand for 30 mins.

Prick sausages and place one in greased muffin cup. Roast in 375F oven, turning once, for 25 mins.
Remove tins from oven and remove sausages. Add 1 Tbs. oil to each muffin cup. (Less if there is already some sausage fat at the bottom)
Place back in oven to heat oil (watch carefully so you don't smoke out your Airstream).
Cut each sausage into four pieces
Remove tins from oven and pace four pieces into each cup
Increase oven temp. to 425F
Ladly batter onto hot oil and sausage, filling each cup almost to the rim

Place back into oven until batter puffs up and is golden (about 15 mins).


Serve immediately. If you'd like to do the Canadian thing - top with maple syrup.
Makes 12 individual toad 'n the holes (more if you use the smaller muffin holes)

Muffin tins are also great for mini meat loaves!

Maggie,

That's wonderful. We kids sure loved it - especially with the maple syrup. I was a picky eater, but would sure dive into this.

My grandma would be honoured that you're going to make it part of your family tradition. Enjoy!

Thanks' for the recipe. I am not much of a cook and am always looking for simple easy dishes for pot lucks. I had to look up "dried savory". I have never used it before. I have everything else for the recipe, but going to have to try to find "savory".

This would be a really good portion-control system, too, for many things.

I used to make a Dutch apple pancake for my kids that had a similar batter to the recipe below.

Ohhhh, the ideas are coming! . Quiche, pasta bakes, apple crisp..............

Would these work with silicone muffin cups or is the metal necessary?

Chief, dried savory would be with the spice-bottle section.

Maggie, exactly. With today's concern about obesity, muffin tins are great for portion control. Most of the fat/calories are in the sausage. One or two toads would be lot lower in fat/calories than two eggs with toast and four sausage links.

Kids love muffin-tin cooking because it's kid sized and compact.

I found this link; they talk a lot about cooking for kids... http://www.wired.com/geekmom/2012/08/muffin-tin-chef/
