While turkey can too often lend a depressingly gummy texture to meatloaf, we've improved on the standard by adding couscous, zucchini and lots of spices. The best thing of all? They cook in half the time of a full-size meatloaf and you can have leftovers for a sandwich the next day on toasted whole-grain bread.

Ingredients

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Generously spray a nonstick muffin pan with cooking spray.

  • Gently mix turkey, zucchini, onion, bell pepper, couscous, egg, Worcestershire, mustard, pepper and salt in a large bowl, preferably with your hands, without overworking. Equally divide the mixture among the muffin cups. Spread barbecue sauce on top of each loaf, if using.

  • Bake until the meatloaves are cooked through or an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 165 degrees F, about 25 minutes. Let the loaves stand in the pan for 5 minutes before serving.

These are delicious!! Sometimes I saute the onions first. Red bell pepper works best I think but you can also sub orange or yellow or even green although it will taste less sweet. Read More

I was looking up zucchini recipes because we grew some this summer and I don't really have a sweet tooth to make the bread. My husband and I just loved it! We will be having this on a regular basis. Added some fresh sage and thyme from the garden for a little more flavor. Read More

Delicous! Loaded with veggies but you still taste the turkey. They're a great portion size for smaller kids. Mine took quite a bit longer to cook (40 minutes total) but they weren't dried out so maybe my oven is "off" or my ground turkey was too cold going in. Read More

This is one of my favorites. I have experimented with seasonings and toppings (add corn top with salsa for a mexican flavored dish) and I always freeze my leftover portions in a vacuum freezer bag. They reheat very quickly once thawed and are a great option to take to work for lunch. Read More
