BBQ Muffins

First of all, this dish uses Jiffy. Enough said. Do you really need to know any more?

This recipe comes from one of my favorite magazines, Taste of Home. The original directions call for layering the corn muffin mix, beef, and cheese, which I did...but I think it would be easier to just mix all of the ingredients together. It was a challenge spreading the last layer of muffin mix over the layer of cheese, even though they came out perfectly.

The tangy sauce mixed with the beef was an ideal complement to the sweetness of the corn muffins. I'm a big fan of "pick-up" food, so this fit the bill. You won't be able to eat just one!

Printable recipe

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 box corn muffin mix 
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Cook and drain meat. Stir together with brown sugar, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt, pepper and garlic powder.  

Prepare corn muffin mix according to package directions. Stir in meat mixture. Scoop evenly into 12 greased muffin cups.

Bake at 400 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.

  1. These sound like they would be perfect for a tailgate meal, if Alabama ever plays in the daytime again.
