Easy Cheeseburger Mini Muffins


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!

Prep Time:

Total Time:

2 dozen muffins


  • cooking spray

  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ¾ cup milk

  • ¾ cup ketchup

  • ½ cup butter, melted

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard

  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese


  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.
