Tom’s Meaty Muffins

Hello my friends. I hope you are keeping well and staying safe. I’m staying safe by staying at home. Home is my favourite place. Yesterday I celebrated 5 years in my home. It was 5 years since mummy, daddy and Tillie adopted me so we had a wonderful weekend doing my favourite things – gardening and cooking. We made some meaty muffins. They were so delicious that I wanted to share the recipe with you. Tom’s meaty muffins are easy to make and you can adapt the ingredients to create your own favourite meaty muffin recipe. So here’s my recipe for Tom’s meaty muffins. They’re yummy. I hope you enjoy them.

What you need to make 12 meaty muffins …

  • 500g mince
  • Some cheese
  • Some herbs – dried or fresh
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • Muffin trays.

How to make meaty muffins …

1. Put the mince in a bowl (or bowls if you are making different flavours).

2. Add some herbs and some cheese.

3. Add the egg and mix it together with your paw (if you are making different flavours like we did, then divide the egg between the bowls).

4. Divide the mixture into muffin tins. If you have a little bit of mixture left, you can heat a little oil in a frying pan, make a little burger pattie and cook it in the pan. My meaty muffin recipe is so versatile that you can also make burgers. Yummy.

5. Put in oven 180 degree C.

6. Bake for 20 – 25 mins until golden brown and bubbling. I like to watch my meaty muffins bake. It’s really good.

7. Take out of oven and leave to cool in the muffin tray.

7. Take the meaty muffins out of the muffin trays.

8. Eat meaty muffins. Yummy.

Some flavour inspiration …

Because we were celebrating a special day, we made three flavours …

Turkey, manchego and basil.

Beef, cheddar and parsley.

Lamb curry and goats cheese. For the curry flavour we grated in a small amount of fresh turmeric and fresh ginger and scattered in a few cumin seeds. Yummy.

My favourite meaty muffin was the Turkey, manchego and basil muffin. Tillie’s favourite was the Lamb curry muffin.

The healthy stuff …

Tillie always adds a little note about the health benefits of the ingredients when she writes up her recipes. Well, my meaty muffins are really yummy and they make me happy. And happy is healthy right? So enjoy your meaty muffins. They’re happy and they’re yummy. Maybe I will call them Tom’s Happy Little Meaty Muffins.

Stay safe.

A little note …

We love our homemade treats and food because we know exactly what we are eating and there are no additives or preservatives in homemade food.

Tillie and Tom have no sensitivities to the ingredients used in this recipe and we only use ingredients that our humans eat too.

Homecooked food and treats should be enjoyed as part of your total daily food intake. As a guide, Tillie and Tom eat 2 – 3% of bodyweight per day depending on how active they are. Tillie is 12.5kg and at her ideal weight. She is moderately active so she is fed 2.5% of 12.5kg which is 312g of food per day, made up of 135g for breakfast, 30g for lunch, 135g for dinner and the remainder as treats.
