this one on that page really looked good to me!!

APPLE-CHESTNUT MINI-MUFFINS

1 egg
1/2 C milk
1/4 C salad oil
1 C chestnuts (peeled and chopped fine)
1 med apple
1 1/2 C wheat flour
1/2 C sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Topping:
1/3 C chestnuts (chopped fine)
1/2 C brown sugar

Heat oven to 400 deg. F. Spray 3 mini-muffin tins with Pam. Beat egg, stir in milk, oil, chopped chestnuts, chopped apple. Beat in remaining ingredients. Make nutty topping by thoroughly mixing chopped chestnuts and brown sugar. Set aside. Fill muffin cups about 3/4 full. Sprinkle about 1/2 tsp of topping on each. Bake 20-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Immediately remove from pans.

Chestnut Sauce

2 chopped shallots
1Tbsp. oil
2C. beef broth
2Tbsp. Madeira
3/4C. cooked, peeled, & chopped chestnuts

Sautee shallots in oil. Add beef broth & Madeira. Cook until reduced to 1 cup. Stir in chestnuts. Serve with one pound beef or game.

I have never made this but ran across it & thought I'd post it. My guess as far as the beef goes, it's talking about a roast.

To roast chestnuts...Cut a small slit in the flat part of the shell to prevent the nuts from exploding. Place on a baking sheet & roast at 400F for 10 minutes(for peeling only) or 20 minutes to cook them all the wat through). Using a kitchen towel or oven mitts, remove & discard shells & inner brown skins while the nuts are still hot. (If you let them cool, they are harder to peel) Chop or use as desired.
