Make-ahead meatballs

December 13th, 2012 No Comments
In Hilary’s list of holiday survival tips, she mentions making meals and snacks ahead of time so you can eat them quickly when you’re in a festive frenzy.  This recipe below fits that bill as well as being a great source for lean protein (which will keep you full and energized throughout the day).
Subtract the spicy and it also looks like a great option for kids!

Spicy Turkey Meatloaf Muffins!!

from Nicole Landress at BLAST900
Prep Time : 10 min
Cooking Time : 45 min
Number of Servings : 12

  • 2 packs Jenni-0 Extra Lean Ground Turkey
  • 1 cup dry quick cook oatmeal
  • 3 Egg Whites
  • 1 1/2 cups red onion (diced)
  • 1 1/2 cups zucchini (shredded or diced)
  • 1 – 2 Jalapeños
  • 2 garlic cloves or 1 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp. yellow mustard
  • 2 tsp. ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: any veggies you want!


Preheat oven to 375*

Spray a 12 cup muffin pan with cooking spray and place to the side.

Mix all dry ingredients together. I like to place the oats in a food processor for a second or two.

Next dice the onions, jalapeños, and garlic. Shred your zucchini using a cheese grater. You can really add any veggies you like, spinach is very good in this recipe!

In a large bowl, combined the turkey, eggs, veggies and mustard.

Add in your dry ingredients and mix well.

Make 12 muffins that are slightly smaller than a baseball and place directly into muffin pan. Sprinkle with cayenne pepper if you like a little spice!!!!

Bake for 45 min or until the inside is no longer pink and Enjoy!!!
