1 cup cooked quinoa

1/4 cup bread and butter pickles, chopped

1 clove garlic, crushed

2 tbsp. ketchup

2 tbsp. yellow mustard

1 large egg, slightly beaten

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. black pepper

2 1/2 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, cubed into 24 (1/2-inch) cubes

1 cup store-bought crispy fried onions, crushed

Step 1


In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, the cooked quinoa, chopped pickles, garlic, ketchup, mustard, the beaten egg, salt and pepper. Mix well.

Step 2


Spray a 24 cup mini muffin pan with cooking spray. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the turkey mixture into each cup. Press a cube of cheddar cheese into in the center of the turkey. Spoon another tablespoon of turkey over the cheese and press to cover.

Step 3


Sprinkle crushed fried onions over the tops of the turkey meatloaf cups.

Step 4

Bake & Serve

Place the muffin tin into a pre-heated 350°F oven. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until turkey is cooked through and the fried onion topping is browned. Turkey is done when it feels firm to the touch and a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170°F.

tip TIP

TIP: Freeze food in serving sizes. Use 1-quart plastic containers or zip-lock freezer bags. This allows foods to freeze quickly, avoid freezer burn and to defrost only what you need.
