Recipe by Diet It Up
I'll agree that Rachael Ray can be a nagging voice on the TV for even a 30-minute meal. But, the gal sure can cook. I took her Meatloaf Muffin recipe and doctored it up for a healthier alternative. This quickly became a staple in my health-conscious household. You make the meatloaf in a muffin tin so portion control is easy as pie.
- 1 lb ground turkey (not turkey breast)
- 1 small onion, cut into chunks, about 1/2 cup
- 1 celery rib, cut into a few large pieces
- 1⁄2 green bell pepper, about 1/4 cup
- 1 large egg, beaten with a splash of milk
- 3⁄4 cup breadcrumbs, plain
- 1⁄2 tablespoon McCormick's Montreal Brand steak seasoning
- 1⁄2 cup barbecue sauce
- 1⁄2 cup salsa
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- olive oil

- Preheat oven to 450 degrees and brush a 12-muffin tin with olive oil.
- Put the ground turkey in a large bowl.
- Put onion, celery and green pepper in the food processor. Pulse until finely chopped and add to the bowl of meat.
