Stuffing Muffins

Yields12 ServingsCook Time1 hr

Does your family fight over the crunchy corners on the stuffing? Well, you don’t have to anymore. Use a muffin tin to give everyone exactly what they want they want this Christmas: stuffing edges and peace on Earth. You get the best of both worlds with a brown, crunchy exterior and a soft, tender interior, perfect for soaking up gravy. Because these stuffing muffins are pre-portioned, they’re easier to serve—and keep you in check, so you don’t overload on carbs. If you have any leftovers, pop them in the freezer and save them for a later date.
