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

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees

  • Finely dice the onion or puree in a blender or food processor.

  • 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.

  • 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 8×8 or 9×13 baking dish.

  • 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)

  • 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.

  • When meat is almost done, make sure sweet potatoes are cooked by whichever method you prefer, and drain the water if you boiled them.

  • Mix with butter and salt or pepper if desired and mash by hand or with an immersion blender.

  • 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.
