Kids Can Cook- Stuffing Muffins Perfect for Little Hands
By Megan Hogan, Owner of Take Out Intervention in Virginia Beach


Make Holiday cooking more enjoyable for your family. These Stuffing Muffins are perfect for kids to make, eat, and also the perfect size for the grown-ups to keep their portions under control.

What you’ll need

  • 1 loaf of stale bread, preferably whole wheat
  • 3 ribs of celery, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons parsley
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • Salt and Pepper


What you do (Directions for the Grown ups)

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees

2. Cook onions and celery in a little olive oil or nonstick spray until translucent

3. Cut bread into 1 inch cubes

4. Put the butter in the heated pan to melt

How the kids can help

1. Place the bread cubes in a large mixing bowl

2. Measure the parsley, garlic, and poultry seasoning

3. Add onions and celery to bowl

4. Add the chicken broth to the bread slowly to moisten but not get soggy

5. Pour the melted butter over the bread and mix until well combined

6. Season with salt and pepper to taste


7. Spray muffin tin with nonstick spray

8. Scoop mixture into muffin tins, compacting slightly

9. Ask a grown up to put the muffin tin in the oven and bake uncovered for 15-20 minutes


Helpful Hint: Skip the paper muffin liners. My first batch become soggy and the liners stuck to the stuffins, causing them to fall apart.
