If you’re any kind of Foodie whatsoever, you’ve noticed that muffins are Big this year. Muffins from your mother’s days were delicious little cakes that came in flavors like lemon, cinnamon, and blueberry with crunchy-soft muffin tops that had been carefully baked in a 350* oven to obtain the perfect texture. Add butter or icing, and that is the original version of the perfect muffin.
But, times have changed, and food hacks have become the latest trend just like muffins. They have forever changed and renovated the simple food groups like the muffins of our history. Food hacks are popular this year, and there are thousands of sites to find the talented hackers and their creations.
So, what is hacking exactly? It is an innovative and creative method of reintroducing favorite and established staples back into the food kingdom.
A popular example is the ingenuity at Frito-Lay that devised the walking taco. This version of a taco is made by adding ground beef, lettuce and salsa to an individualized-bag of Fritos. The owner is free to walk anywhere with his “taco on-the-go.” This is food hacking at its finest. It has taken the old, boring recipes of yesteryear and transformed them into new, delicious evolutions that are making it in the food world.
Here are 10 ways to transform the ordinary muffin into a sweet or savory bite. The benefits in creating these “muffins” are that you can use all natural ingredients, and since they are being prepared in a muffin tin, the sizes and portions are uniform.
