No the pod people didn't invade my body ... it's me sharing a recipe.
I was watching a Rachael Ray episode last week and she made little turkey meatloaf cupcakes - little turkey meatloafs made in muffin tins, with sweet potatoes as the "icing". I liked the idea, so did my own take.
First, I don't like celery and the apples seemed weird, so I searched online and found several recipes, then combined them all and adapted them and did it my way.
1 1/4 lb ground turkey - this is the standard size package from Jenny-O.
1 jalapeno seeds removed and chopped (because I have some and need to use them up)
1/2 c onion chopped
1 tsp garlic
2 tsp worstchesire
1/4 - 1/2 c sundried tomatoes in oil chopped
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1 tsp poultry seasoning
1/4 c parmesan/reggiano cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
melt butter in saute pan, add chopped onion, chopped jalapeno, garlic, worstchesire, and cook until onion is clear. Remove from heat and allow to cool - I put mine in the fridge for a couple of moments. In a bowl, put turkey, breadcrumbs, poultry seasoning, parmesan, egg, salt, pepper, and tomatoes. Add the cooled onion mixture. Mix ingredients. Don't over work it - just enough so it's mixed through.
Divide into 6 portions and place in a texas size muffin tin. (if you use a toaster oven like I do, you will then find out that your muffin tin doesn't fit the toaster oven, so after forming them in the muffin tin, I took them out and just put them on a tray that did fit my toaster oven). Bake for about 25 minutes. If you have a thermometer the pros say bake until the internal temp is 165 degrees but I don't own a thermometer, so just make sure it's cooked through but not cooked to death.
I loved them. They weren't dry and had just a little kick to them from the jalapeno. If you like it spicier you can add more jalapeno which I think I'll do next time and you could even leave it out if you don't have any on hand.
The measurements are estimates. They're pretty close but I don't really measure, so you shouldn't stress over it, and please, please, please if you try it or do something similar take a moment and let me know - I'd love to hear how it came out for you.
