Cheeseburger Mini Muffins Recipe

I invented these cute little muffins so I could enjoy the flavor of cheeseburgers without resorting to fast food. I often freeze a batch and reheat however many I need. They're also great as appetizers. —Teresa Kraus, Cortez, Colorado

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 3, 2014

"I loved these muffins. I, too, followed the earlier comments and added twice the ground beef and half of the cheese. Yummy!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 3, 2014

"I really enjoyed these "muffins"! They are a little dense, but I didn't mind it. I chose to skip the ketchup in the mix, since I wasn't sure how it would go over with my kids, so instead I added an extra 1/4 cup of milk. I also used a whole pound of burger, as other reviewers suggested, and I did lower the temp to 400. They were done in 20 minutes! Served with diced onions and tomatoes and ketchup and mustard for dipping! Yummy!"

MY REVIEW

"Liked the flavor, but not the texture. Followed recipe exactly but they turned out dense, heavy and too dark. Why?"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 24, 2012

"I had a spare 1/2 pound of ground beef and decided to make this recipe. My kids (and myself) couldn't get enough. I like that's more hearty than a regular muffin, but portable for road trips and busy days. I also like that the recipe made a lot (I made the regular sized muffins) so I had quite a bit left over to freeze. Will be making again!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 20, 2011

"I used Velveeta instead of cheddar cheese. I think Next time I will add chopped fresh Jalapeno pepper. :)"
