This is one of my husband’s favorite things that I currently make. They are tasty and pair so well with many different kinds of potatoes.
One word of advice. Don’t make these in an insulated muffin pan or a pan you plan to use for muffins. I ruined two brand new insulated muffin pans the first time I made these. Oops! The muffins will have juices that tend to overflow so I always put a jelly roll pan on the other rack under them so it doesn’t get all over my oven.
- 2/3 cup bread crumbs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 & 1/2 pounds ground beef
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/2 cup grated onion
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp sage
- dash of pepper
- Soak bread crumbs in milk.
- Add meat, eggs, onion and seasonings. Mix well.
- Drop by spoonfuls into twelve muffin sections, dividing mixture evenly.
- Top with piquant sauce (see below).
- Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
Mix the following in a small bowl:
- 3 Tbsp brown sugar
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tsp dry mustard
I make a double batch of the sauce. I set aside half of the sauce and put the other half of it on the muffins when I bake them. I warm the other portion in the microwave on high for about 30 seconds to serve with the muffins.
