What can you do with a cup or two of leftover mincemeat? Make the most delicious muffins in the world!

A few weeks before Christmas last year, I found a recipe for a very tasty apple dish that used a small amount of mincemeat for the filling. I was left with quite a bit of Robertson’s Classic Mincemeat as a result.

And even though I love mincemeat pie, I’m horrible at making pie crusts so I researched other ways to create a new dish with my mincemeat leftovers.

Here’s the recipe I found for leftover mincemeat: Mouthwatering Mincemeat Muffins. They’re wonderful with a little butter fresh and hot from the oven… plus they’re hearty enough to serve for a quick breakfast with a cup of coffee in the morning.

When you make the recipe, feel free to add more or less mincemeat, depending on how much you have left over from other baking. You could also replace the apple with chopped pear. A dash of ginger could be fun, too.

These muffins freeze well, so why not make a double recipe while you're at it. You won't be disappointed. They are so scrumptious, you'll go weak at the knees at your first bite. No kidding.

Recipe Notes

Robertson's Classic Mincemeat:
All Fruit, NO High Fructose Corn Syrup

This is the mincemeat I used for the muffin recipe. It's all fruit (no meat like in the old days) and really delicious. My grocery store only had mincemeat with high fructose corn syrup, so I was happy to find Robertson's Mincemeat at Fresh Market. I was pleased to see that Amazon carries it also, now that I've moved 10 miles away from Fresh Market.
