Muffin Tin Monday - Alphabet Theme

Muffin Tin Monday at Her Cup Overfloweth


It's Muffin Tin Monday again, complete with themes restarting this week! After last week's *highly* creative theme of "orange", I was very very grateful for some direction from Michelle (aka MuffinTinMom and my very cool Twitter friend).



We opted for a mostly breakfast themed tin for the alphabet theme.
A - Applesauce
B - Blueberries
C - Cantaloupe
D - yogurt Dip
E - scrambled Eggs
F - homemade Fruit roll-up

The letters are Nature's Own Honey Grain Bread, toasted. You can see that the letter C got a little too close to the toaster coil. ;o)

Check out Muffin Tin Monday for more fun tins!

  4. Looks delicious!! I wish I had been motivated enough to make a tin this morning but it was the first day of school. I love the little letters to go with the foods!

  5. That is a good idea - forget the kids - I'll have it myself.

  6. Do you have a recipe for the roll-up? It's something we can't get here in the Netherlands.

  7. This is such a great idea, Shannon! It would be fun to try an all A lunch or all B ingredients lunch sometime. :)

  8. @Alison I used about 10 really ripe strawberries, pureed in my mini processor. I mixed that with organic applesauce (I was going to make my own, but the store had just organic apples with nothing else added but water, so I saved a step there), and a splash of vanilla extract. It goes on a special tray in the dehydrator so that it is spread out thinly, then just dehydrate at 140ish for about 8 hours.

  9. Hmmm, I may be able to do that in my pizza oven... Worth a (sticky?) try! Thanks for answering!

  10. @Alison, let me email someone for you. I still keep in touch with my old Girl Scout leader and she insists we made them in a real oven. :o) My guess is that as long as you can get them off the surface (I rubbed the tray down with a few dots of canola oil) and you use a low temperature oven, it should work.
