These were incredibly good! They were moist, but so easy to just pop in your mouth! I used ground turkey instead of ground beef as that was what I had on hand. I didn't have any tomatoes or sliced pickles (totally thought I did though), but they really just need some ketchup or ranch! These are perfect for those nights that you just don't know what to make. I don't know about you, but I usually have pancake mix and some form of ground beef on hand! I also think these would be great with Italian sausage next time!
Mini Cheeseburger Pies-adapted from Taste of Home Cooking School, Fall 2013
Total Time: 45 Minutes
- 1 pound ground beef or turkey
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 cup shredded cheese
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup pancake mix
- 2 eggs
- Ketchup, mustard, tomatoes, pickles, optional for garnish
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 12-tin muffin cups with baking spray.
In a large skillet, cook beef, garlic and onion over medium heat until browned, about 7 minutes. Drain. Stir in Worcestershire sauce and garlic salt.
In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, pancake mix and eggs until blended. Spoon scant 1 tablespoon of mixture into bottom of each muffin tin. Top with 1/4 cup of the burger mixture, and a sprinkling of cheddar cheese. Spoon 1 tablespoon baking mixture onto the burger in each tin.
Bake 20-30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool for about 5 minutes. With a spoon or thin knife, loosen sides of muffins from the pan and serve with garnishes, if desired.
