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!

How to Make Ragamuffins


  • 1Melt the butter in a microwave safe mixing bowl.
  • 2While the butter is melting, in another mixing bowl, sift together with a whisk the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and herbs, if desired, until thoroughly combined. Set aside.
  • 3Add milk and egg to the melted butter. Whisk together slightly until blended.

    Stir bread crumbs into the milk mixture. Set aside to soak a few minutes.
  • 4Fold the dry ingredients into the milk and crumb mixture, stirring just until all is moistened and combined.
  • 5Fill muffin cups, that have been prepared with food release spray, about 2/3 full.

    Bake 25 minutes at 375*.
  • 6NOTES: 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.
