Let Me Help You With Dinner. (BBQ TurkeyLoaf Muffins)

1 2/3 to 1 3/4 pounds ground sirloin ( I used 1lb.ground turkey)

1 medium onion

2 ribs celery from the heart of the stalk

1 green bell pepper

1 egg with a splash of milk

1 cup plain bread crumbs (I had Italian on hand, so that's what I used)

2 tablespoons grill seasoning (recommended: Montreal Steak Seasoning by McCormick - this can be found in that section of the grocery store with all those packets of seasonings and marinades)

1 cup smoky barbecue sauce

1/2 cup tomato salsa

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

Vegetable oil or extra-virgin olive oil


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Put ground beef into a big bowl.

Chop Onion, Celery and Bell Pepper up very finely or put into a food processor.

Then add the veggies to the meat bowl.

Add egg, beaten with milk, bread crumbs and grill seasoning to the bowl.

Next, mix together the smoky barbecue sauce, the salsa and the Worcestershire sauce.

Pour half the sauce mixture into the bowl with the meatloaf mix.

Mix the meatloaf together with your hands.

After washing up, brush a 12-muffin tin (1/2-cup each) with vegetable oil or extra-virgin olive oil.

Use an ice cream scoop to help you fill meat into a each tin.

Top each meat loaf with a spoonful of extra sauce.

Bake about 20 minutes.

I am constantly trying new recipes...Most are ones that are OK, but not out of this world. Every now and then I stumble upon one that is a keeper and that I will forever use. THIS IS ONE OF THEM.

I love that its a little muffin shaped portion - which helps me not to eat more than I should.

I added up all the ingredients and divided it by the serving size for a Weight Watchers total...its 4.5 for anyone that is doing WW.

This recipe would go AMAZINGLY with some mashed potatoes...but since I'm trying to be a good girl I served mine with a small baked potato.

And the next day...I cut one in half and had a cold turkey-loaf sandwich. (YUM)

I'm sharing this because you will thank me. I'm no cook...but when I find a gem that is a recipe...I want you to know.

Can't wait to try these out. We have gone 100% turkey at the Wheeler house, so this will fit right in. And the Montreal steak seasoning was half off at the grocery.

Happy long weekend, friend.
