I didn’t warm the tomato sauce because I mixed some of the sauce in with the pasta that I was making and then I just poured a dollop as you can see by the mess on the cupcakes. They turned out incredible! I loved the surprise of mozzarella cheese in the center after you take a bite. It really does taste like a mini chicken parm! It’s a lot healthier too because it’s baked and not fried. I was surprised how much flavor the ground chicken had especially since I didn’t have some of the ingredients. The onion powder, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper really did work well. I don’t even think it needed the onion, pepper or basil. I mean I would probably like to try it with it the next time.
I ended up making 12 big cupcakes instead of the 16. I didn’t feel like making another muffin tin dirty for only 4 more cupcakes. So I just made a few of them extra big for Mike. He didn’t mind. I really thought this was a unique idea to make it in a muffin tin. I’ve never made something like this before and I’m glad that Pinterest inspired me to try it. I like trying new things and I’m excited to try some of the amazing things that I have been pinning.
I tell ya, Pinterest really is addicting! I only wish they would stop changing around the format of the app on the iPhone. It’s really irritating how they keep changing what you have to do to pin something. I wish they would just keep it the same. You get used to one way and then they change it. It’s enough with the changing.
Have you ever tried making something savory in a muffin tin? Would you?
