The inside of my turkey muffin.
In effort to be overall more healthy and fit I have been following many individals on Instagram who have the same frame of mind. On a few occasions I've seen pictures of turkey muffins; people have them for breakfast, snack or dinner.
Some posts include the recipe but I've never bothered to read it & see exactly how turkey muffins are made. Turns out turkey muffins are more of a turkey meatball placed in a muffin tray. Not at all what I had in mind. I hear muffin and think light fluffy, chewy goodness.
I don't know why but while food shopping today I thought I'd give turkey muffins a try but my way of course. As I mentioned before, in my mind I was trying to really create a muffin.
My turkey muffins ready for the oven.
Before I give the "recipe" I have to warn you all that I'm a winging it type of cook. I cook as they say in Spanish "with the eye" al ojo. Most amounts are at your discretion and "to taste"
-1.5lbs of ground turkey
-1 box of Turkey Stove Top Stuffing (because there's just something about turkey and stuffing that will forever go together for me. Also I thought it would give me that muffin texture I was after)
-1.5 cups of water
-tablespoon of garlic minced
-3 green onions minced
-2 celery stalks diced
-3 small carrot stalks grated
-Italian bread crumbs
-grated Parmesan cheese
-In a mixing bowl add turkey, grated parmesan, salt, pepper, egg, oregano and mix with your hand.
-then mix in garlic, green onions, celery and carrots.
-next toss in Stove Top packet and pour in the water. Use the italian bread crumbs to help bind.
-spoon in the mix into a muffin tray. Cook at 375 for 40min.
Finished turkey muffins out of the tray.
Give the muffins 5mins to cool before removing them so that they don't fall apart. Again all spices are to taste. If you try my recipe let me know please. Hope you enjoy your healthy treat. I have no idea how many calories this has sorry.
