365 Days of Pinterest: Day 3

Please note: My commitment to this blog has been on a temporary furlough due to my day job. But now I’m back!

I have been busily pinning but also trying some fabulous recipes. My Feeding the Family board has some awesome ideas that will hit the dinner table soon.

A couple of weekends ago, we had some ground turkey that was nearing its “use or freeze” date. I didn’t have much time to cook and the pantry was not stocked with our typical go-to foods. Then I remembered that I had pinned a turkey mini-meatloaf recipe that might do the trick.

BBQ Turkey Meatloaf Cups

Basically, this is a meatloaf recipe for the time challenged! I can’t tell you how many times that our meatloaf is still cooking after the sides are ready. You will never have this trouble with this recipe. Short cook time and perfect little individual loaves.


The recipe filled ten muffin cups with one package of ground turkey. The only ingredient that omitted was green peppers since I didn’t have any (and really don’t care for them anyway). I also didn’t have any cauliflower so I didn’t try the mashed cauliflower topping. Next time!

We all really liked the meatloaf. Good flavor for ground turkey that can be quite tasteless. My son complained a bit about the carrots, but I thought they were a great addition. I’m not sure that the muffin tins would work with beef since the fat content is so much higher than turkey. A definite addition to the dinner rotation!
