I didn't until I started researching batch cooking recipes but now, thanks to Pinterest, I can tell you that a dump recipe is a recipe that you put together in a zip-lock bag (or other container) and put in the freezer before cooking. You then get it out the night before you're ready to cook it so it's defrosted in time for when you're ready to cook it and because you've already prepared the ingredients, you don't have to do anything else other then cook it either in the slow cooker or in the oven.

Cheesey Broccoli Egg Muffin

After last week's mini egg omelettes success I thought I'd try making them again but this time I made them with the intention of using up some broccoli and  grated cheese that was left over from when I made macaroni cheese with broccoli and bacon last night.  They were even more delicious than last weeks version! Don't worry, I'm not going to share a different egg muffin recipe each week - this one was too good not to share though....
