About a week ago my sister-in-law lost power in CT in the last snow storm.
SO happy she decided to spend the weekend with us! Not only bringing her wonderful self but the contents of her fridge as well! I was more than happy to receive!
About a pound of ground turkey was thawed and since I didn't have any to add to it of my own I made these turkey mini meatloaves. Obviously cooking for a family you will need to double this recipe, especially if you like to cook and freeze foods for a busy night.
With a family of 5 there were none left with the 10 muffins that were made from the pound. Since I know they freeze well having made them numerous times, I might even triple the recipe next time!
I love left overs and I love to cook a meal one night, freeze it and be able to eat it another night when I'm super busy knowing it will taste just as good!
These are really low in calories and carbs as well. A perfect meal with a side salad and vegetable.

I added a quarter cup of diced onion, softened, a tablespoon of minced garlic, and used pano instead of bread crumbs. I made 8 instead of 10, and when I punched it all in fitness pal and the calorie count was 114 each. They turned out real well. I will make these again.
My best friend let me know about your blog. As someone who has gestational diabetes with my third pregnancy, I LOVE seeing the nutritional information, since the carbs is what I need to count. LOVE everything I've made so far & so do my picky eaters - thank you!
I'm so glad you and family are enjoying the recipes!
Gonna make these for a potluck at work tomorrow even though no one wanted anything healthy. More for me 🙂 Thank you for the recipe
BTW I'm always wishing you had an android app.. I'm sure if you did people would use the heck out of it! Just a suggestion 😉
Thank you, I hope to have an app one day!
Made these tonight and it was great. I can only eat very small portions so I am always looking for ideas that can be frozen for later. Also because my husband tends to not like the same foods I do so I have to be able to freeze for that reason as well.
Two thumbs and two big toes up for these.
I have made these many times already because they're easy and very delicious!!!!! Last time I had some quinoa in the fridge cooked up, and put that in instead of the breadcrumbs. I put in about 1 cup of quinoa, and loved the result. Kids didn't notice or taste the quinoa and I enjoyed how they weren't quite as dense as the original recipe. We could eat more without over-indulging on meat! I also often just make them into large or small meatballs and bake in a dish all together, because it saves me washing up all the muffin pans! I have also made them without the cheese and using rice milk, to make them dairy free - still delicious!!
fantastic, thanks for sharing your ideas, I may try the quinoa, not sure if the hubby will eat them but I will try!
I made these tonight. So, Yummy! I had to omit the bread crumbs, cause I'm doing the 17 Day Diet plan. They didn't even need it. Thanks for the great recipes.
Good to know, thanks Karen!
I am going to make these for my freezer co-op group! How do you recommend re-heating them after they have been cooked and frozen?
Thanks for the recipe!
When I've frozen mine, I make sure to thaw them overnight or at least 6-8 hours during the day for the night I plan to have them for dinner. I have re-baked them at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes until warmed through. You could probably microwave but it may make them dry out a bit.
I make a similar version using a box of dressing. I love how easy it is to make these in muffin tins. Great to have on hand for those times I don't have a lot of time.
These look great and I just happen to have some ground turkey in the freezer. Please link up your recipe at Muffin Monday. Thanks!
