BBQ Stud Muffins (paleo meatloaf)

BBQ Stud Muffins (paleo meatloaf)

I was watching TV the other day and someone used the term “stud muffin” and it made me think of on-the-go meatloaves (who knows why!).  I knew that horses could be studs, but I had to look up the term as horse meat is hard to come by!  Apparently, a stud is a breeder animal and there are such things as “stud cattle”, so beef was my meat of choice!  These BBQ Stud Muffins are great for a quick fix or served with broccoli and cauli-mash!

Ingredients

  • • 1 pound ground beef
  • • 1 large egg
  • • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • • 1 carrot, peeled and grated
  • • 2 green onions (green part included), minced
  • • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • • 1/4 teaspoon dried lemongrass
  • • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • • BBQ sauce (recipe below)
  • • BBQ Sauce:
  • • 1/2 cup marinara sauce
  • • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together BBQ sauce ingredients. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the remaining ingredients (using your hands if my preferred method!). Add 1/2 cup of the BBQ Sauce. Reserve the remaining sauce.
  4. Grease a muffin pan. I have a 6-muffin pan that makes bigger than usual muffins. This recipe will probably yield about 8 "regular" sized muffins. Also, I greased the pan using a paper towel and a little bacon grease for added flavor.
  5. Fill the pan with the meat mixture. With the remaining sauce, divide among your muffins and pour over the tops.
  6. Cook for approximately 30 minutes (this will vary depending on the size of the muffins). For best results, use a meat thermometer for desired doneness.
  7. Enjoy!
