Mmmm…Meatloaf Muffins

January 19, 2011

My father is a huge fan of the singer Meat Loaf.  He has even declared that Bat Out of Hell is “the greatest rock opera of our time” on more than one occasion.

Frankly, I was more impressed with his performance in Spice World, but whatever…

Onto another kind of meatloaf.  Meatloaf Muffins! I’ve been making these for awhile now, and they are always a hit.

These little buggers are the perfect comfort food in winter.  Plus, the portions are very reasonably sized, so you won’t fall into a meatloaf food coma after you eat them.  Well, unless you eat all 12 in one sitting…

Turkey Meatloaf Muffins

(Adapted from here)

Ingredients
1.5 lbs. lean ground turkey
½ cup onions (scallions), finely chopped
1 cup plain breadcrumbs
⅔ cup ketchup
1 dash hot sauce
⅓ cup parsley, chopped
1 dash Worcestershire sauce
2 eggs and 1 egg white, lightly beaten
½ teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
½ cup Annie’s ketchup or Simply Heinz
1 tablespoon brown sugar, Mix with 1/2 cup ketchup for topping

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well until blended.  Be careful not to over mix.  Use an ice cream scoop to fill each section of a muffin pan (coated with cooking spray) with meat rounding the top to obtain a muffin shape.  Brush with ketchup topping mixture and bake in a pre-heated oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.  These freeze really well.  Makes approximately 12 muffins.

If you make these, let me know how you like them!

I’m not feeling so hot right now, so I’m just going to take it easy today (and no worries- I am not sick from the muffins!).

I hope that you all have a great day! 🙂
