Barbecued Corn Muffins Recipe

Barbecued Corn Muffins Recipe

Being raised on a farm in Mississippi, I was encouraged to cook at an early age by my grandmother and mother. I rarely depend on written recipes, but this is a classic.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 package (8-1/2 ounces) corn bread/muffin mix
  • 2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • 1. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain and place in a bowl. Add the brown sugar, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt, pepper and garlic powder.
  • 2. Prepare corn bread mix according to package directions. Fill greased muffin cups with a scant 2 tablespoons of batter. Top each with 2 tablespoons beef mixture; sprinkle with cheese. Top with remaining corn bread mix.
  • 3. Bake at 400° for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 1 dozen.

"Since the recipes says to mix the cornbread according to package directions, why not just make your own cornbread? I make my cornbread with stone ground corn, whole wheat flour and unbleached flour. You can decrease the meat called for and the same for the cheese if you are wanting to make it healthier. Decrease (or omit) the brown sugar for a still healthier muffin. "

"i guess i am hoping to find a healthy solution by using unbleached when ever possable, and by using soy meat as an alternative to real ground beef. i am asking to find out proper mix of corn bread and seasonings in order to still make this wonderful looking muffin. thanks
