Easy Cheeseburger Mini Muffins

Rated as 3.4 out of 5 Stars

"My grandmother passed this recipe along years ago. She fixed them as a quick treat for her grandsons who had been hunting all morning. Now I take them to everything from baby showers to Christmas parties to game day gatherings. They are always a hit. I serve dipping sauces of mustard and ketchup. Easy!"

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Spray 24 mini-muffin cups with cooking spray.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef and onions in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain excess fat and set aside to cool.
  3. Combine flour, white sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk milk, ketchup, melted butter, eggs, and mustard together in a separate bowl; stir into flour mixture until just moistened. Fold ground beef mixture and Cheddar cheese into batter; spoon into each muffin cup.
  4. Bake muffins in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 15 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • After adding all ingredients into batter, if batter is a little stiff, I use a tablespoon of water to soften it.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I'm ready to add bacon next time!

They sounded so good but were disappointing. As some others noted they were very cake like and on the dry side. Bacon may help but I am not sure. I may try them again but will need to figure ...

Not bad. As other reviewers stated, they are only as big as you fill the mini muffin cup. So, fill them full and rounded over to look like a muffin. Next time, we'll try adding bacon like other...

I have to agree with lutzflcat on some of the points made. These cheeseburgers were okay. They were too dry and cakey thick, not much flavor and I would have liked the cheese to be more melted...

12.19.15 I followed this recipe to the letter and, honestly, was a little disappointed. Just a couple tips: you don’t get much rise on the muffins, so do fill each mini-muffin cup to the top...
