Im a big fan of quick and easy recipes. When my kids are hungry, they are hungry. And on top of being hungry, I don’t have time to keep checking the oven with two kids running around. And trust me, they run circles around me during dinner time. [Well, they run around me all day long, but faster and louder while Im trying to cook.] To save time and my sanity I created these Italian meatloaf muffins. They are an easy homemade recipe that are delicious with a healthy twist and cuts down on cook time. Basically, they are one of my dinnertime favorites.
To make your own Italian meatloaf muffins you will need:
- One onion
- One bell pepper
- Jar of artichokes
- 1 Cup Italian bread crumbs
- 1 pound ground turkey
- Cupcake liners (optional)
Preheat oven to 350.
Chop your onion and bell pepper. [I love sweet onions and red bell peppers.]
Sauteed your onion, bell pepper and artichokes in a pan for about 10 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes.
Mix together together your ground turkey, veggies and the cup of bread crumbs. I use my hands because its easiest.
Add to cupcake liners in the muffin tin and bake fro 15 minutes at 350.
Total time from start to finish is about 35-ish minutes. And these are something that my husband loves as well as the kiddos. [I don’t tell them they are healthy-ish.] They are full of veggies and the ground turkey is leaner then hamburger, but you can’t tell the difference in these meatloaf muffins.
I normally add a roll to the meal too. I made basil crescent rolls by adding basil to melted butter and drizzling it over the warm bread. [I just drooled a little thinking about these.] Easy peasy and everyone is happy. Especially momma. And that’s all that matters right? [Right!]
