Turkey Zucchini Meatloaf Muffins

I love meatloaf but I stopped eating red meat almost 3 years ago. I still love meatloaf however so I’ve made it with ground turkey instead. Here is one of my favorite recipes and one of the easiest for meal prep.

2 eggs slightly beaten

1 cup of shredded zucchini (be sure to drain the excess water that come from shredding or grating the zucchini)

1/2 cup of Italian bread crumbs (I use Panko)

1/2 cup of chopped onion (I’m not a big onion fan so I use 1/4 a cup)

1 teaspoon of sea salt

1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano leaves

1/4 teaspoon of pepper (I love pepper so I use 1/2 teaspoon)

1 pound of ground lean turkey

Optional : I love peppers and garlic so I add them.

1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic

1/2 cup of diced bell peppers (your choice of color, this time I used orange bell pepper)

Pre heat your oven to 350.

Mix together all ingredients into a bowl.

I use a muffin tin to cook it so that I have the perfect serving size. I grease the muffin tin with olive oil.

Once everything is mixed take handfuls of the mixture and put it in the muffin tin. Bake at 350 for 60 minutes. I like to remove the the meatloaf at the 50 minute mark and brush the tops with ketchup and the return them to bake for 10 minutes.
