Turkey Meatloaf Bites Recipe

By Guest

My mini muffin pan became my prized possession when I had kids! Making things in bite size makes it so easy to store, freeze and serve when you have little ones. Not to mention that it bakes so fast since they are tiny amounts in each portion. I started off using it mainly for muffins, cakes and other desserts, but then caught on the possibilities for using it for appetizers and even dinner items too.

These little bites are great to include some new veggies your kids may have not tried before. It is an opportunity to introduce it for the first time using this bite sized fun and full of flavor meatloaf bites. I also like this recipe because it is full of nutrition and very cost effective. The whole grain from bulgur or freekeh adds fiber while the protein from the ground turkey is perfect for feeding your muscles.

1 tsp of paprika

Preheat 350ºF. Using a coffee grinder or food processor place about a cup of bulgur and grind to smaller pieces but not quite to a flour, it will still be small sized grains. Add 1½ cup of warm water and let it soak for 15 minutes. Then drain and set aside. Add bulgur to ground turkey, then mix in egg, spinach, carrots, salt and paprika. Mix it well using your hands. Then place about a tablespoon into each mini muffin spot. Take to oven for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through. Makes 36-40 bites.


You may use a regular pan and shape it as a meatloaf. We serve it with plain Greek-style yogurt for dipping sauce.
