This is a recipe in our normal dinner rotation. Sometimes I make slight changes to the recipe, but this version is the most healthy. I will tell you at the end my favorite variation. But this version is still pretty solid.
Here is what you will need:
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 medium chopped onion
- 1 large carrot finely chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 cup ketchup, divided
- 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey. ( I used lean, but extra lean will work too)
- 1 1/4 cup GF Oats (I used Trader Joe’s)
- 2 tablespoons mustard.
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 2 large eggs
- Cooking spray
- Mini Muffin Tin. (24 count)
Drop two large tablespoons of the meat mixture to your sprayed mini muffin tin. Top each with the remaining ketchup.
Cook 350 for 20-25 minutes. Use a meat thermometer to make sure the internal temperature reaches 160.
This recipes is a solid 4. I mentioned there are ways to vary this recipe. My personal favorite is using 1/2lb of ground spicy pork sausage in place of 1/2 lb of the turkey. This adds a little more fat and taste. But if you want to get it pretty healthy, just stick with the turkey. Either way you are will have a tasty treat. You can also play around with the seasonings.
You can freeze leftovers too. I love having these in the freezer for a quick meal. Consider making extra.
