Since there was only the two of us eating a Thanksgiving dinner this year, my wife decided to try out an idea she had to make muffin cups out of stuffing, and then filling them with a spiced hamburger mixture.
And what a great idea that turned out to be. I only wish she had made more! They were so incredibly delicious. I would suggest you don’t wait until next year to try these out.
Filled Stuffing Muffin Cups
Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
- 6 cups stuffing mix (your preference)
- 1 egg
- 1 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 lb. lean hamburger
- green onion (chopped)
- celery (chopped)
- 1 clove garlic (minced)
- salt & pepper to taste
- Mix the stuffing ingredients and allow time for the stuffing to absorb the liquid.
- Grease the muffin pan and fill half way with stuffing. Then press the center of the stuffing down in each cup to form a cup for filling.
- Mix the filling ingredients together and fill each stuffing cup to the top. Bake at 350° F. for 25 to 30 minutes until browned and slightly crisped.
