Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Irish/American
Serves: 6-8
Ingredients
  • 1.5-2 pounds of ground beef (grass-fed if possible)
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup almond flour (or enough to thicken- this will depend partially on the fat content of the meat and the texture of the almond flour)
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 5-6 sweet potatoes
  • ¼ cup butter or coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt or Himilayan Salt
 
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
  2. Finely dice the onion or puree in a blender or food processor.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the meat, eggs, flour, basil, garlic powder, pureed onion, Worcestershire sauce, and salt and pepper and mix by hand until incorporated.
  4. Grease a muffin tin with coconut oil or butter and evenly divide the mixture into the muffin tins to make 2-3 meat “muffins” per person. If you don’t have a muffin tin, you can just press the mixture into the bottom of an 8x8 or 9x13 baking dish.
  5. Put into oven on middle rack, and put a baking sheet with a rim under it, in case the oil from the meat happens to spill over (should only happen with fattier meats if at all)
  6. For sweet potatoes: if they are small enough, you can put them into the oven at the same time, if not you can peel, cube and boil them until soft.
  7. When meat is almost done, make sure sweet potatoes are cooked by whichever method you prefer, and drain the water if you boiled them.
  8. Mix with butter and salt or pepper if desired and mash by hand or with an immersion blender.
  9. Remove meat “muffins” from the oven when they are cooked through and remove from tin. Top each with a dollop of the mashed sweet potatoes to make it look like a cupcake.
