Thai Turkey Meatloaf Muffins


My husband requested a more adult muffin for a sophisticated evening with friends (sans kids). Not that there’s anything unsophisticated about peanut butter and jelly muffins…

Here is something else to do with ground turkey that is oh so flavorful! These healthy muffins are super moist and have a special Thai kick. TheThai flavors are delicious and the muffins are perfect for reheating at lunchtime.

Although my kids were doubtful at first, after the first bites, they approved. My husband had seconds and asked for a “doggy bag” to bring to work the next day.
