My muffin dilemma

  1. sunforged profile image65
    sunforgedposted 6 years ago

    So in a caffeine fueled hunger craze , I ate 6 muffin tops off a package of brand new deli fresh muffins. (leftover from my brothers prom)

    So now, I have 6 perfectly fine muffin bottoms -they are unappealing to look at and I will never eat them in their present form.

    Any suggestions for reinventing the muffin bottom into a more appealing food stuff?

      The correct terminology (re: American Muffin Society) is muffin stump, not bottom.

      Apparently they can become quite violent.  I would break out the milk and deal with them post haste.

    Layer them with whipped cream, top with fresh strawberries and present them to your wife at the end of the day, pretending that's what you had in mind all along! Hopefully, she won't fling them right back...! wink

      Thats a great idea!

      They are blueberry muffins (well they were smile ) so Ill opt for blueberries, so that might work.

      but, she is pregnant, and I specifically got yelled at for taking so long to eat them as she claims she cant stop herself from eating them (well, I fixed that!) - so will refeeding them to her plus whipped cream be taken the wrong way?

      ..I will still eat them, regardless,  w/ whipped cream and berries, so the suggestion works anyways!

        well, you can always tell her that berries are full of antioxidants which are great for her, so hopefully she'll come round...and it might be your lucky day! Otherwise too (incase she flings them right back), you get to eat the cream, so it's a win win situation! wink

    Alawys keep a few cans of Betty Crocker frosting in a variety of flavors cream cheese to chocolate. And and a variety of sprinkles. They make anything look good again. I had to do that when the kids were little.

    When these are refrigerated they are delicious when eaten with a spoon.

    If you like bread pudding, you might make muffin pudding instead, but don't tell GreekOne that or he'll make some scandalous allusion to something else entirely.  I used to make bread pudding out of 3 day old cinnamon buns and people at the cafe adored it!

    You pagans clearly do not understand the real issue here - the answer is to cut the tops off flat then turn them upside down on a plate so they look like a new something. This solves the half-eaten problem.

    Expand on MOW's idea and make a blueberry shortcake with the muffin stumps and both of you can have it for dessert.

    I would cover them with ice cream and strawberry jam.
