Cool & Creative Ways to Use Your Muffin Tins!

Condiment Caddy

on March 15, 2012

So in light of the beautiful weather we’ve been having lately I thought I’d start you all thinking about  those picnics, barbecues and summer parties that will be here before you know it. In fact I bought hot dogs to throw on the grill while I was at the store yesterday and my husband’s super cool new handy dandy burger press from Williams- Sonoma (that he just had to have, lol) arrived in the mail yesterday as well so guess what we will be doing one day this week! And guess what we will be using… A Muffin Tin Condiment Caddy! Yep you heard me right. I found this on Pinterest a few weeks ago, when it was snowing outside and here we are March 15th and it’s in the 80’s who knew? Anyway lets get back on topic, so a muffin tin as a condiment caddy… instead of using several different dishes (like I ALWAYS do, now you only have one to clean!) for your onions and tomatoes, pickles or relish, lettuce, whatever you put on your burgers and dogs put them in your muffin tin! If it’s a 6 cup tin and you only have 3 toppings lets say… tomato, onion, pickles fill the other 3 with some ketchup, mayo and mustard! Stick a plastic spoon in them for spreading and voila! Cool huh? You can mix and match. Or if you like EVERYTHING or have guests and are not sure what they like break out the 12 cup tin and put it all in there. If you still have cups to fill add fancy toppings like Gulden’s Spicy brown mustard, ( just make sure to label) you can add chilli for hot dogs or those cute little midget pickles the options are endless 🙂 Hold on let me make a list… it’s one of my other favorite things to do 😉 If you know me you are grinning right now! Ok so we have…

  1. Lettuce
  2. Tomatoes
  3. Pickles (slices)
  4. Onions (slices for burgers or diced for dogs)
  5. Relish (for hot dogs or burgers)
  6. Chilli (for hot dogs)
  7. Shredded Cheese (for hot dog or burgers) if you need to fill holes add more than 1 type 😉
  8. Midget Pickles (dill, sweet, bread & butter)
  9. Ketchup
  10. Mustard (plain and or flavored)
  11. Mayo
  12. BBQ sauce (for burgers, some people like it!)
  13. Salsa (same as the BBQ sauce depending on the burgers you are serving it fits!)

There ya go! Lots of options get creative with it and let me know how it turns out. Here’s a picture of the one I saw on Pinterest to give you some more inspiration 🙂
