Mini Turkey Meatloaf

I am not sure if the word "meatloaves" exists. I feel like it doesn't. So I keep calling this recipe Mini Turkey Meatloaf because I don't want to get made fun of. Now you are making fun of me in your head because it probably is a word. Then you will eat this delicious, healthy, quick meal and remember that I am a genius where it matters.

The best part about this meal is that the hardest part is dicing the onions, green peppers and garlic. I have actually made this twice in the past week so I had pre-diced my onions and peppers. So yesterday, I was literally able just to throw everything together and hand grate the garlic right into it.

Sorry the picture is before these beasts went into the oven. Totally forgot to snap a picture after the fact. And I am too lazy to go grab some from the fridge right now to take a picture of. If you notice, my onions and green peppers are pretty roughly chopped. We are no longer afraid of veggies in this house. If you have kids or a husband like Jon was circa 2006, feel free to dice them more finely. Or just cover them with ground turkey better than I do.

1 lb ground turkey
1-2 cloves minced garlic (depending how much you like garlic)
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1/2 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
2 egg whites
2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp salt free Italian seasoning
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt

Ketchup or salsa to top

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prep regular sized muffin tin with cooking spray. Mix all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Scoop even portions into muffin cups. Bake for 30-35 minutes until browned through. Add desired topping (ketchup, salsa or even BBQ sauce) and put back in oven for 3-5 minutes.

Serve immediately or portion out for future meals! Just pop in the microwave for 45 seconds to 1 minute.
