Burger Cupcakes

When I buy fresh mince I always like to make up burger patties and freeze them for a quick meal.

For my little guys I have found that the best way for them to enjoy this is if I bake the mix in a mini muffin tray.

Great advantage of this is that there is no burning or crust on the outside.
They cook evenly and I can cook many at once.
No rolling of or shaping required,
I also freeze these after cooking so that I can reheat for a quick meal for the little guys.


1 kg beef mince
1 Onion, grated
1 Carrot, grated
1 Zucchini, grated
2 Garlic cloves, sliced finely
1/2 Cup Tomato Sauce
2 Eggs
3/4 Cup Breadcrumbs
2 tbs Seeded Mustard
Fresh Parsley
Salt and Pepper to taste

Let’s put it altogether

Mix all ingredients together with your hands. Give it a good working to work the proteins in the meat and eggs to ensure the meat will stay together when cooked as burger patties.

For the burger cupcakes cook in a 180 degree oven for 10-15 minutes.

This amount of mix will easily make 8 Burger Patties and 24 mini burger cupcakes.

    They sound awesome.. Have you ever tried them with turkey or chicken mince (For a healthier option?)

    @Lami they would work perfectly with either turkey or chicken mince.

    What size pans are you using??? I’ve done 24 minis & 12 good-sized meatballs and STILL have insane amounts left over!

      Final count: 23 little dollops in the mini-muffin tin as pictured in your page; 24 golfball-sized balls in the mini-muffin tin; 12 full-sized muffins in a regular muffin tin.
