Meat muffins (AIP-friendly)

Guaranteed to horrify your vegetarian teenager

  • 2lbs ground meat of your choice (2 types is always more flavourful)
  • 4 cups chopped finely chopped vegetables & fresh herbs
  • 2 tablespoons dried herbs & spices
  • Salt (to taste)

Preheat oven to 350.

Meat muffins

Ground lamb & chicken muffins with oregano

Mix ingredients together with your hands. Heap the meat & vegetable mixture into a 12-muffin tin or 4 mini-loaf pans.

Bake for 45-50 minutes until crisp & brown on top.

Make meat muffins when you have time & freeze them for when you don’t.

They reheat beautifully in the oven.

  1. This is simple but genius. Last week I used venison, turkey, parsnips, rutabaga and thyme, and this week I’m using chicken, pork, daikon radish, carrot, green onion, ginger and fish sauce. 😄
