Comfort foods!

We all have our favorites and we keep them around for a reason.

Meatloaf is a common comfort food that can be updated, by baking them in muffin tins.  Making them convenient little snack portions or, by grabbing more than one to make them a part of a main meal.

Easy to make, completely portable for quick at-your-desk lunches and incredibly versatile when deciding on ingredients.

Below is our go-to recipe that contain ingredients we have on hand all the time.  Top with your favorite tomato or marinara sauce!

Makes 12 muffins

2 lbs ground turkey (if I don’t have ground turkey, I usually have ground beef and that works great also!)
3 egg whites
1 c quick cooking oats
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp thyme
1-2 tsp dried mustard (depending on personal tastes)
1-2 tsp black pepper
1-2 tsp ground chipotle pepper (omit if you do not like heat)
1 tsp sea salt
1-2 tblsp garlic powder
1 small onion, finely chopped (food processor works fast!)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Line muffin pan with silicone muffin liners for easy clean up! (or grease muffin pan)
Mix all ingredients thoroughly in large bowl.
Evenly divide mixture into 12 portions**, roll into balls and place in muffin tin.
Bake for 40 minutes.

**You can make mini muffins by using smaller-sized muffin tins – kids love them!
