Turkey Meatloaf Muffins

Last night the Bears ate mini turkey meat loaves... a la Cooking Light. Since I found out that my body does not like red meat last year, I have had to learn how to revamp some of my favorite meals - cheeseburger, meatloaf, meatballs, etc. Turkey and I are only friends once a month or so - too much turkey and I end up looking like a turkey : big belly and all.

NOTES: These are INCREDIBLE. It took everything in my power to not eat more than the serving size. 
– Cooking spray
– 1/2  cup chopped onion
– 3  tablespoons dry breadcrumbs
– 1  tablespoon parsley
– 1  teaspoon  Worcestershire sauce
– 1/4  teaspoon salt
– 1/4  teaspoon dried oregano
– 1/8  teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
– 8  ounces ground turkey breast
– 1  large egg white
– 3  tablespoons  ketchup, divided
– 1/4  teaspoon  hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Heat small skillet over medium heat. Sauté onion for 5 minutes.
3. In a medium bowl combine the onion, breadcrumbs, and the next 7 ingredients.

4.  Stir in two tablespoons of ketchup.
5. Spoon about 1/2 cup meat mixture into each of 3 muffin cups coated with cooking spray.
6. Combine remaining 1 tablespoon ketchup and hot pepper sauce in a small bowl. Brush ketchup mixture over meat loaf tops. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes.

If you need side suggestions: I had steamed veggies- Mr. Bear had some mashed taters.

  1. OMG! What a great idea! I just bought some ground turkey and I was planning on making "Teriaki Sliders..." kids love em!

  2. Those look amazing. They are going on our menu for next week! I love Cooking Light!

  3. I make these all the time...I didn't know they were from a cooking light recipe. I just thought i threw them all together... great minds think alike i guess!
