Beef Muffins

  • 1 lb. Ground Beef
  • 2 c. All Bran Buds (Cut back on the Bran Buds and added about 1/2 cup of ground Flaxseed meal)
  • 1 1/2 c. Sugar
  • 1/2 c. Shortening (Would substitute butter for the shortening next time)
  • 2 Eggs, well beaten
  • 2 1/2 c. Flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp. Soda
  • 1/2 Salt
  • 2 c. Buttermilk
  • 1 c. Raisin Bran Cereal
  • 1/2 c. Raisins
  • Nuts optional

Pour one cup boiling water over ground beef. Stir in All Bran Buds. Let stand until cool. Cream sugar and shortening. Add eggs. Sift flour with soda and salt. Add alternately with buttermilk. Add bran, meat and water mixture, raisin bran and raisins. Mix well. Nuts maybe added just before baking if desired. I seasoned the top with a 21-Seasoning Salute from Trader Joe’s and fresh ground pepper. Bake in greased or paper lined muffin tins at 375 until brown 15-20 min. Makes about 2 & 1/2 doz.
