  • Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Muffins, Brooklyn Style
  • Coffee Cake Muffins
  • Raspberry Cream Muffins
  • Cappuccino Muffins
  • Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins
  • Carrot Slaw Muffins
  • Mac and Cheese Muffins

  • Pureed Pumpkin Muffins

  • Mocha Delight Muffins

  • Fat Free Fudge Muffins
  •  Hot and Spicy Muffins
  • Red Onion Riot Muffins

  • Nutty Nutella Muffins

  • Oatmeal Muffins
Please share some ideas for muffins in your comments.  Maybe, I will make them.

This leads up to the scrumptious breakfast muffins, coming up.

Breakfast Muffins  


2 cups mashed potatoes
1/2 cup vegetable broth
2 Tablespoons oil
1 onion chopped
3/4 cup cream cheese
1/4 cup vegetable broth
5 slices sun dried tomatoes
2/3 cup flour 
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup milk
3 eggs

Topping:  5 Cherry tomatoes and  1 cup Cheddar Cheese OR
3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese


Preheat oven to 400.
Spray 12-cup muffin tin with non-stick oil.
Boil potatoes until mashable (not mushy) 
Add cream cheese and 1/4 cup vegetable broth
Cook onions in oil in a hot skillet until lightly browned.
Add sun-dried tomatoes and heat for additional two minutes.
In separate bowl mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, milk,  and eggs .
Combine potato mixture with flour mixture and pour mix evenly into each cup.
Top potatoes with 1 Tablespoon cheese and 1 Tablespoon *tomato.
Bake at 400 for 30 minutes until golden brown.

Topping: Put tomatoes in small bowl and place in microwave.  Cook at high for two minutes.  Remove from microwave.  Take a fork and chop the tomato so you have smaller pieces.  Place tomatoes on top of muffins.  Shred cheddar cheese directly over tomatoes.

I made six of these with the tomato and cheese on top and another six with Parmesan, sprinkled from bottle on top of potatoes.
