Good idea for an instant chip/dip set. Put a wine glass filled with dip in the center of a bowl and fill with chips. Also works with a margarita glass for tortilla chips and salsa.
Mini meatloaf and mashed potato "cupcakes" --I've been making something like this for years. The meatloaf cooks faster in the muffin tin, and I sprinkle cheese on the potato "frosting".
