These warm little nuggets of deliciousness are made with crumbs!! They're so quick and easy you won't believe it. And it's a lovely way to put fresh, warm, home-made "bread" on the table. The recipe is very basic, so the muffins go well with lots of different dishes. With a little shmear of butter -- YUM!

Ingredients

1 large

NOTES: Use whatever herbs you like, or none at all. I've even crunched up French Fried Onions in them :)

Keep bread heels in a bag in the freezer, for a quick whirl in the food processor -- any combination will do! Or just defrost slightly and cube them. Use about three heels for 2 c. of cubes.

I like to keep dry stuffing mix on hand. When I'm in a hurry I sub 2 c. of the croutons for the bread crumbs -- and they're already seasoned :)

I use my DeMarle muffin trays, for super easy release. If you don't have one -- I highly recommend it!

*This recipe is easily made gluten free by using GF bread crumbs or cubes, and GF all purpose baking flour.
