Spinach Ratatouille Strata Muffins

Karen Grant


Somewhere between a bread pudding and a pull -apart, these pretty, delicious and flavorful muffins are perfect served alongside a nice bowl of stew, soup or roasted meat and simple salad.
I also like to drizzle a little warm olive oil/balsamic reduction over them and bypass the urge to butter them.
