Healthy Barbecue Turkey Meatloaf Cupcakes

 

 

CHICKEN N PASTA AND MEATLOAF CUP CAKES 034I’ve been making this Turkey Meatloaf for years and my daughter loves it, but this time I thought I’d make them into cupcakes(portion control this way!)  They were delicious and will be great for her to take for lunch all week, add potatoes to the oven while you bake the cupcakes and dinners off to a fast start.

CHICKEN N PASTA AND MEATLOAF CUP CAKES 033

You can  put together meal this week really quickly, just add everything to the bowl and mix up with your hands. Turkey burger, egg, panko bread crumbs, worcestershire sauce and barbecue sauce, then portion the mixture out in 8 cups in your muffin tin bake for 35 to 40 minutes until cooked through and serve.  Best part is, most of the time your just baking them, so it hands off, and like I said throw some potatoes in the oven while the cupcakes are baking, add a salad and dinner’s done!

In a large bowl combine everything except the drizzling barbecue sauce in together with your hands or a large spoon and divide meatloaf into 8 muffin cups, drizzle with additional barbecue sauce and smear it over the tops with a spoon or you fingers and bake at 350 for 30 to 40 minutes and serve.  Like I said, throw some potatoes into the oven while the meatloaves  are baking, they make take a little more time than the meatloaves so throw them in first and the majority of your meal is done.

This is hands down, my daughter’s favorite recipe.  The first time I made, we ate it all in a day, then I made it again a week later and it away just as fast as the first one.  I’ve been making ever since, and it still disappears in a day.  It’s super simple and basically healthy for you, You just can’t beat that!
