Print Recipe
  • 1 1/2 lbs lean ground turkey
  • 1 egg
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup Panko (I used seasoned) crumbs
  • 1/2 cup cans of diced tomatoes (I like to add one with green chili peppers)*
  • 1/2 cup cans of diced tomatoes (I like to add one with green chili peppers)*
  • 1/4 cup diced carrots
  • 1/2 cup low sugar or organic Heinz ketchup
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
Mashed Cauliflower
  • 1 head italian dressing for extra flavor
  • 1 cup Low Sodium Chicken (or Vegetable) Broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup light sour cream
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 400º F.
  2. Lightly coat a 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mix all meatloaf ingredients with your hands. Then, fill each tin cup with ¼ cup of turkey mixture.
  4. Lightly spray a piece of aluminum foil with cooking spray and cover muffin pan.
  5. Bake for approximately 20 minutes covered.
  6. Once turkey cups are in the oven, start your cauliflower mash: cut cauliflower heads into small florets. Boil on medium-high heat with chicken broth and water until VERY soft (about 10-15 minutes), stirring occasionally.
  7. Drain cauliflower and return to pot. Mash well and stir in sour cream, cream cheese, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper; set aside.
  8. Remove meatloaf cups from oven and remove foil cover; set aside.
  9. Scoop mashed cauliflower and place about a gold sized ball atop each muffin.
  10. Place turkey cups back into the oven and bake uncovered for an additional 15 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165º F.
  11. Optional: Garnish with parsley and drizzle with BBQ sauce. Serve with the extra mashed cauliflower!
Recipe Notes

*Truth be told: Dan and I loved the cauliflower mash but my boys did not! Next time around they requested real mashed potatoes with their meatloaf cups. I'm cool with that!
