Stuffing Muffins Are Vegetarian

stuffing in muffin pan

I like making dishes that I can serve in individual portions. For Thanksgiving dinner I will be making a vegetarian stuffing in a muffin pan. This makes it easy for us to portion control especially when there is a variety of dishes.

You can do this with your own recipe. Just prepare the muffin pans with paper liners and use a large ice cream/cookie scoop to fill each muffin liner. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes, or until they are lightly browned.

I made a vegetarian recipe so that we can add a little more veggies since Thanksgiving dinner  can be heavy on the carbs.


Stuffing Muffins Are Vegetarian
: Stuffing/Vegetarian
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 small chopped onion
  • 2 carrots peeled & chopped
  • 2-3 cups fresh baby spinach chopped
  • 2 apples peeled & chopped
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts (optional or use whatever nuts you prefer)
  • 1 TBLS. grapeseed oil
  • 1 TBLS. butter substitute (your favorite brand)
  • 1 bag of your favorite bread cubes for stuffing
  • vegetable broth - amount based on the package directions
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. In large saucepan, heat the butter and oil and saute the chopped vegetables starting with the carrots and celery. When they start to soften add the celery and onions.
  2. Next add the apples and nuts to the vegetables and saute about 3-5 minutes just until they soften.
  3. Follow the directions on the stuffing package to add the bread cubes to the vegetable mixture.
  4. When the stuffing is cooked, scoop the mixture into the muffin pan.
  5. Bake in a 350 degree oven for approximately 20 minutes.

    That’s a very cool idea to put the stuffing in muffin cups. The first year my sister and I became vegetarian, my mother made a lovely veggie cornbread stuffing and my stepfather accidentally put it into the turkey instead of the sausage stuffing. . .

      Hi Margaret, Oooh, that must have been disappointing for you. I’m sure your stepfather has gotten better and knows not to do that again this year.

      Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon. Happy Thanksgiving,
