New Recipe: Little Turkey Muffins

I want to start off by letting you know I created a facebook page to go along with my blog, because I was getting tons of questions and feedback and I want everyone to be able to share! So if you're reading this, please take two seconds and like the page! Just click here!

Today at the gym, I did back and bi's- I will post some of the exercises I did under the exercise tab as soon as I can. Now on to the food! Last week B randomly asked me if there was a clean recipe for meatloaf, and there is! Jamie Eason has a great recipe that I followed pretty much to a tee. I have never had meatloaf before, so I was a little apprehensive, but when I looked at the ingredients there's nothing too strange in there so I decided to give it a shot!

Turkey Meatloaf Muffins

Ingredients:
- 1/2 tsp ground cumin
-1/2 tsp tyme
-2 tsp mustard
-2 tsp pepper
-2 tsp McCormicks Chipotle Pepper Spice ( I looked 3 different places and couldn't find the McCormicks brand, so I got an off brand)
-1 cup quick cooking oats
-2 tbsp garlic powder
-1 small onion, chopped
-2 celery stalks chopped
-1/2 green bell pepper (This is not in Jamies recipe, but you can pretty much add any veggies you want!)
- 3 egg whites
-2.5 lbs extra lean ground turkey

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 375
2. Mix all ingredients together except meat and eggs
3. Add in turkey and eggs, and mix with hands
4. Spray muffin tin with non stick spray and place mixture in tin.
5. Bake for 40 minutes or until meat is cooked all the way through.


I love that they are cooked in the muffin tins, perfect portions every time!

  1. You want to bake for about 40 minutes. I adjusted the chipotle pepper spice down to 1 1/2 tsp because I'm a spice wimp.

  4. How many "muffins" does this recipe make?? I'm not sure how full my muffin tins should be with the mixture before I bake it!
