Last week I came across some ground turkey on discount. I decided to make a healthier version of meatloaf since I am trying to cook healthier. I used a muffin pan since traditional meatloaf takes so long to cook. My boys loved these meatloaf muffins!
1 pound ground turkey
1/2 pound ground beef
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 cup diced onion
1 clove garlic, pressed or diced
1/2 cup Italian Bread Crumbs
2 eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon parsley
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Heat a frying pan with the olive oil over medium heat. Add onions and cook for about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
In a large bowl comine turkey, beef, onion mixture, bread crumbs, eggs and seasoning. I take off my rings and use my hands to mix the meat mixture.
Spray a 12 count muffin pan with cooking spray. Spoon meat mixture into muffin pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. The meat thermometer must reach 160 degrees when done.
I placed mashed potatoes on top of the meatloaf muffins to make it look like a cupcake!
- Use lean ground beef; otherwise there will be fat in the muffin cups.
- Turkey is a little dryer than beef. Mixing the two is a nice combination.
- Add in pureed vegetables. I bet you could add some spinach and no one would know!
