Mini Turkey Meatloaf Muffins

1 Pt (for 2 muffins)

Serves 4

976 calories per batch

16 oz Ground turkey breast

1 Egg

¼ c Bread crumbs

½ c Chicken broth

¼ c Bell pepper, diced

¼ c Carrot, diced

¼ c Celery, diced

1 Tbsp Dijon mustard

2 tsp Olive oil

2 tsp Black pepper

2 tsp minced garlic

1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce

1 tsp Salt

1 tsp Herb blend seasoning (choose your fave)

Heat oven to 350.

Heat oil in pan over medium heat. Dice veggies and sauté until tender. Add chicken broth to keep the veggies from burning and sticking. This process takes about 8-10 minutes. Once the veggies are tender, allow them to cool down a bit. I spread mine out on a paper plate and placed them in the freezer for about 5 minutes to cool them faster. I have found that cooling them allows me to mix the meatloaf without burning the pajeebers out of my hands. Also, cooling the veggies keeps the egg from “scrambling” once they hit the meat mixture.

While the veggies are sautéing, prep the meat mixture by adding the turkey, breadcrumbs, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, egg, salt, pepper, and herb seasoning into a large mixing bowl.

Once the veggies have cooled down enough to touch them without burning yourself, add them into the meat mixture and mix well.

Add 3 oz of meatloaf mix to regular size muffin tins. (I lined mine with parchment muffin cup liners because I am lazy and did not want to clean up muffin tins after cooking. See the link in my bio for the liners I used.) If you like your meatloaf with a sauce on top, feel free to add it, but a sauce may raise the Points value. Everyone in my house likes their meatloaf with a different sauce, so I tend to make mine plain and let people to theirs to their liking at the table.

Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. This recipe makes 8 mini meatloaf muffins.

As for the herb blend, I used Trader Joe’s Herb de Province, which is a blend of thyme, marjoram, savory, rosemary, basil, sage, and lavender. Use what you have on hand. You could also shake things up and use BBQ seasoning, taco seasoning, Italian seasoning…whatever you like.
