Early in our marriage, one of our favorite recipes was Farmhouse BBQ Muffins. I had found the recipe in an old Taste of Home cookbook and we enjoyed it often for dinner. A couple of weeks ago, my hubby and I were talking about how I might be able to tweak some of the foods we used to eat so that they were low carb/keto friendly, which got my wheels turning. After being gone most of the day today, I didn’t have a lot of time to make dinner so I knew I wanted to make something quick & easy. Initially, Chicken Pot Pie came to mind, but I hadn’t put the chicken in the crockpot earlier in the day. I think chicken tastes so much better after slowly cooking all day. I don’t know what jogged my memory, but then Farmhouse BBQ Muffins came to mind, which worked out perfectly because I had ground beef that I needed to cook. These Farmhouse BBQ Muffins are very similar to my Taco Cups with a little twist on the seasoning for the ground beef. I served our Farmhouse BBQ Muffins with asparagus cooked in the air fryer and a small garden salad. It was the perfect end to our day.
- Brown 1 lb of ground beef and drain.
- 1 cupSugar Free BBQ Sauce
- 3/4 cup cheddar cheese grated
- 4½ tablespoons of butter melted and cooled
- ⅓ cup coconut flour
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- 4 eggs
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⅓ cup cheddar cheese shredded
Brown 1 lb of ground beef and drain.
Add ground beef and 1 cup of sugar-free bbq sauce to skillet. Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes then remove from heat.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a muffin pan. (I used parchment paper squares in the muffin tins to prevent sticking.)
Combine melted butter (I cool mine by popping the bowl in the fridge for 5 min), eggs, salt, and sour cream then whisk together.
Add coconut flour, baking powder, garlic powder, and salt to the mixture.
Stir in cheese.
Spoon into muffin tins.
Then, spray fingers with cooking spray. Pat the batter around the sides of muffin tins to form a cup.
Spoon 2 tablespoons of the BBQ meat mixture in the center of each muffin.
Sprinkle about a tablespoon of cheese on top.
Bake for 15 minutes.
