RECIPE} PFM's Turkey Meatloaf Muffins

So let me just say first and foremost. I've never once used a recipe to make these. I'm a big believer in, "use what you have"! So, if you don't have the exact veggies that I mention in the recipe below (try) and use a substitute or whatever veggie you have in your fridge (ie. kale vs spinach, zucchini vs carrots). The same goes for the herbs/seasonings (parsley, oregano). One last thing… I have a lot of picky eaters in my family. When they hear the word turkey, it freaks them out. So, when I first introduced new recipes with ground turkey, I did a 50/50 organic ground turkey and organic ground beef mix.

We absolutely LOVE these muffins. I make them every single week and use them as quick lunches, snacks and dinners. 


1lb organic ground turkey
1/2 C  ground oats
1/4 C flax (optional)
1 organic brown egg
1/4 red pepper, chopped
1/4 yellow pepper, chopped
1/2 onion, diced
2 C fresh, organic spinach, chopped
1/2 C organic carrots, diced
2 Tbsp oregano
2 Tbsp Parsley
himalayan salt and black pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, place ground turkey. 

Chop your vegetables, I use a food processor. If you choose to use a food processor, do NOT over process, because it will cause your vegetables to liquify! Place your veggies in the bowl.

Add flax (optional), oats (again, place my rolled oats from oatmeal in a food processor. I use them frequently, so I have them on hand), egg, herbs and seasoning and mix thoroughly, with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula.

I spray my muffin tin with Pam with olive oil, (because turkey doesn't have much fat) to prevent sticking. 

Place mixture into muffin tins, just to the top of the pan. I try to keep it level. 

Place in the oven and cook roughly 35-40 minutes. Cooking time will differ, depending on your oven, so make sure to check on these!

Once thoroughly cooked, take out of the oven and let it cool for about 5 minutes before serving. 

Sometimes, I do half of my "batter" in mini-muffin tins. The mini's work GREAT as meatballs!
