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

"I had to have something to bring to a Cub scout potluck supper. The boys & their parents couldn't get enough of them. Everyone asked me for the recipe. They are great for school lunches as well."

"These are delicious, providing you use the right kind of ground beef. They taste amazing with raw pickles and tomatoes and condiments on top! One thing though: Opt for the grass-fed ground beef. Do not get the cheap ground chuck, it will make these taste gross."

"I made these exactly as written. When I finished filling the 48th mini muffin using a small scoop, I added a tablespoon or more of sriracha to the mix and filled about 9 regular sized muffins. The mini muffins were good, but the regular size ones that I added the sriracha to were awesome. I'm going to put them in the freezer and pull them out for the Super Bowl. DH said they tasted like cheeseburgers. I can see why others might add more beef, but I thought they were just fine as written for an appetizer."

"Family loved this - easy to make. I have 2 growing boys, so added 1 pound of meat instead of 1/2 to fill them up."

"I made these according to the ingredients listed and have to say, as printed, these are tasteless, boring, and definitely don't taste like a cheeseburger in a muffin. This is a great idea but needs an ingredient overhaul."

"To CREAMERS, 2 cups IS 16 ounces of LIQUID. For most shredded cheeses, it's 8 ounces. See all that AIR in the measuring cup between the pieces? Yeah, that's what makes it measure as 8 ounces."

"I've given this a 1 Star rating because there is an error in the recipe. The last time I checked, 2 cups is 16 ounces, not 8. Before I even try it, I would like to have the amount confirmed. Is it 1 cup of cheese which is 8 ounces, or 2 cups which is 16 ounces?"

"I doubled the ground beef & reduced the cheese by half as recommended. I cut the ketchup to 1/3 of a cup. & added a couple of ounces of crumbled bacon bits as well. Still not much flavor."

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