Makes

5 dozen

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, including as appetizers. —Teresa Kraus, Cortez, Colorado

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, combine the ketchup, milk, butter, eggs and mustard; stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in the beef mixture and cheese.
  3. Fill greased miniature muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 425° until a toothpick comes out clean, 15-18 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers.
Editor's Note: Muffins may be baked in regular-size muffin cups for 20-25 minutes; recipe makes 2 dozen.
