Turkey meatloaf muffins

June 14, 2018

I am really trying hard to embrace this freestyle lifestyle, it is hard when you don’t eat many of the zero point foods, but I’m trying to create recipes that will help me. These turkey meatloaf muffins are so easy to whip up and one is zero smart points and up to 4 is only 1 SP. These are great for me to have on a day I know I want to make one of my meals higher in points. They freeze well and are great to take to work for lunch.

Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 10
 
zero freestyle per 1 muffin, 1SP/2PP
Ingredients
  • 1lb fat free ground turkey (weighed raw)
  • ½ cup diced peppers
  • ½ cup diced red onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, diced
  • ⅓ cup grated carrots
  • 1 heaping cup diced zucchini
  • ½ cup panko crumbs (I use PC, a Canadian brand, ½ cup= 3SP)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • Dash of salt & pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and spray a 12 hole regular muffin tin with some cooking spray
  2. In a large bowl mix your turkey with all other ingredients, veggies, egg, panko, seasonings and mix well.
  3. Place into 10 of your muffin cups and slightly push down on them.
  4. Bake in oven for approx 40 minutes and serve.
  5. Meatloaf muffins will store in the fridge for a few days and do freeze well.
Notes
Freestyle smart points- zero for 1, 1SP for 2-4, 2SP for 5+, using WW recipe builder
Smart Points- 1 each, using SP calculator
Points PLus- 2 each using PP calculator
Nutritional info- Calories 78...Fat 1.4g...Sat fat 0.2g..Carbs 4.5g...Fiber 0.5g..Sugar 1.1g..Protein 12g using My Fitness Pal, if you enter these numbers into your WW calculator you will get a point value for 1 because this is based on all ingredinets but we know on freestyle most of these ingredients are zero foods

    When I calculate the freestyle points on my app for ten servings , it comes out to 1 point per serving because of the panko . How do you get zero freestyle points for one?

      HI Gail, your panko is maybe a different brand? Mine is 3SP for the 1/2 cup as stated in my post, the only other point is from the Worchestshire

    I want to make a batch of these this weekend to enjoy for lunch next week. But I’m not sure how big a “regular” size muffin is. Not “mini muffin” size, right? More like cupcake size maybe?

    I am just baking these right now, can’t wait to try them. I can never find fat free turkey, it’s always about 92%. Where do you get yours? I live in Alberta so if you get it at the major grocery stores I should be able to find it.

      HI Darlene, I go to a local butcher and sometimes I’ll just get grocery store turkey which is about 95%, I’m in Ontario, I don’t stress if it’s not 99% I just go with it πŸ™‚ I hope you enjoy them

        They turned out really good. I LOVE your turkey burgers with the salsa and I think I am going to try and make those in muffin tins. Thanks for all your recipes, I make lots of them.

        I get mine at Wal-Mart, in the U.S. , 99% Fat free. I also use this recipe in a similar way and make turkey meatballs. In pasta sauce, teriyaki, BBQ sauce. So versatile. I’ll definitely try the mini meatloaves!!!! Yum!!

    Made these for me to have with my salad this week for lunch the only thing I did different I followed the recipe exactly was I added a swipe of canned tomato paste per muffin and made a nice Brown topping and made a nice flavor

    I am new to WW and I only have 80% lean ground beef on hand (I will be getting ground chicken and turkey tomorrow). I cooked it and after draining I rinsed the fat off. How do I calculate this into this recipe?

      4 oz is 2 points

    These were tasty and family approved. Next time I will make a double or triple batch and freeze a bunch after cooking them.

    Can you make this recipe into a loaf instead of muffin size ?

    • Drizzle
      Reply Drizzle October 19, 2018 at 6:10 pm

      Yes I think the loaf will work as well, I’d increase the baking time

    Wondering if you could substitute lean ground chicken?

    I stuffed this mixture into peppers that I cut in half and made stuffed peppers. I poured an 8 oz can of tomato sauce over it and baked at 400 for about an hour. I made a few adjustments for my own personal taste and it came out very good!

    These are excellent. Have tried with extra lean ground chicken. Next will try with 1/2 extra lean ground beef and 1/2 extra lean ground pork.Will calculate the extra WW points. I have omitted the thyme spice not a favourite of mine. I also bake them in parchment large baking cups. Thanks for the awesome recipe.
