Turkey Meat Muffins

Tonight for dinner I made some Turkey Meat Muffins! 😯

Alright, alright, that just sounds gross… I really made turkey meatloaf in a jumbo muffin tin 🙂

I had the full intention of following Gina’s Skinny Taste recipe to a T, but impatience got the best of me and I messed a few things up. Woopsie!

First I mixed up the following in a bowl:

  • 1/2 package Nature’s Valley 99% Fat Free Ground Turkey Breast (leftover from the stuffed zucchini I made Sunday)
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 of a white onion, chopped (per Gina’s recipe, these were supposed to be sautéed.. but I missed that step)
  • 1/4 cup quick oats
  • 2 tbsp ketchup 😀
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 tsp Marjoram
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black pepper
  • 1 tsp worcesterchire (this was supposed to go on TOP of the meatloaves.. oops again)

Into the tub:

Once combined, I evenly distributed the mix into two jumbo meat muffins (I don’t know why, but “meat muffin” makes me giggle 😉 )

Then I basted the top with about a tbsp of ketchup mixed up with a dash of worcesterchire:

These cooked in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes. Halfway through the cooking time, I put a cup each of cauliflower and broccoli into the oven to roast. I usually roast my veggies at 415 degrees for 15 minutes, so I put these veggies in for an extra 5 minutes since the oven was at a cooler temp.

I seasoned the broccoli with S&P and garlic powder and the cauliflower with S&P, garlic powder, onion powder, and red pepper flakes.

When I opened the oven to put the veggies in, it smelled EXACTLY like my mom’s meatloaf (must be the smell of baking ketchup 😆 ) I got pretty excited at this point, and was glad I made 2 meat muffins so I’ll have some leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Woo hoo!

All baked up:

I served this meat muffin up with some Heinz 57, because that’s what any self-respecting meatloaf eater should do:

All together:

Two thumbs up!!! All of my mistakes made for one TASTY dinner 🙂
