  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil or unsalted butter
  • 1 small red onion finely diced
  • 90 g broccoli florets
  • 70 g kale (leaves only) rinsed and finely chopped
  • 250 g minced beef (ground beef)
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • a pinch of sea salt


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F),160°C (325°F) for fan assisted. Select a non-stick cupcake tray (muffin pan) and lightly oil 8 of the muffin cups.
  • Heat two tablespoons of olive oil or butter in a frying pan (skillet) over a low/medium heat. Add the diced onion and chopped broccoli florets. Sweat the vegetables for 3-4 minutes until just tender.
  • Add the chopped kale to the pan, stir to combine and remove from the heat. Set aside to cool.
  • Add the minced beef (ground beef) to a large mixing bowl. Add the cooled vegetables. Season generously with sea salt and mix together well to combine, distributing the vegetables throughout the beef.
  • Add the beaten egg to the beef mixture and stir well. Mix everything together so that the beef and vegetables are well combined with the egg.
  • Divide the mixture evenly between the oiled muffin cups. Pat the tops of each down with a spoon so that it is flat.
  • Transfer to the oven to bake for 25 minutes or until completely cooked through and golden brown all over. Allow to cool and firm a little then carefully ease the beef muffins from the tray using a spatula.


The recipe can easily be adapted to incorporate other leftovers that you have or to change the flavours and keep things interesting i.e. sub the onion for the green parts of leeks, thinly sliced and add your favourite cheeses.
