HEARTLAND RASPBERRY YOGURT MUFFINS

Recipe and photos by Dinner with Julie

This recipe makes a large batch – 18 generous muffins – which keep well and are easily frozen!

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup canola or other mild vegetable oil
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups plain yogurt
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 - 2 1/2 cups oats (old fashioned, if you have them, or quick)
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups frozen raspberries (don't thaw them)

 

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400F. In a large bowl, beat the oil and sugar, and add the eggs one at a time, beating after each until the mixture is thick and creamy.

The original recipe instructs to stir in the yogurt, then whisk together the dry ingredients and raspberries and add them. I whisked together the dry ingredients, stirred in half, then stirred in the yogurt, then the remaining dry ingredients along with the raspberries, straight from the freezer. Either way.

Fill buttered or paper-lined muffin tins all the way, and bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden and springy to the touch. Tip them in the pan to help them cool.

Perfect Grass-Fed Beef Burgers

Adding onion delivers moisture; forming thicker patties prevents them from cooking too fast and drying out. Both steps are key when working with grass-fed ground beef.

Ingredients
SERVINGS: 4
1 small onion, coarsely grated
1½ pound grass-fed ground beef
1¼ teaspoon kosher salt, plus more
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Hamburger buns and desired toppings (for serving)

*Top off with Shelburne Cheddar and microgreens from this week's basket!


Preparation
Using your hands, gently mix onion, beef, 1¼ tsp. salt, and ½ tsp. pepper in a medium bowl. Gently shape into four 1½”-thick patties (loosely formed patties will be more succulent).
Heat oil in a large skillet, preferably cast iron, over medium-high heat. Season patties with salt and pepper, place in skillet, and immediately reduce heat to medium. Cook 4–6 minutes per side for medium-rare. Serve on buns with desired toppings.


DO AHEAD:
Patties can be formed 4 hours ahead. Cover and chill.
