We love these muffins. So versatile: throw into a picnic basket, add to a big salad, make into meatballs for spaghetti, quick grab and go lunch.
I often make these, alternating between using ground turkey and ground chicken. If I am remembering correctly I got the recipe idea from Jamie Eason's website years ago. There are a lot of variations on the web, but this is my favourite.
- 2 lbs ground chicken or ground turkey
- 1 eggs (original recipe uses 3 egg whites, but my family like them with whole eggs)
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 0.5 tsp ground cumin
- 0.5 tsp dried thyme
- 2 tsp ground mustard
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 garlic cloves (original recipe uses 2 tbsp powder, but I like adding fresh cloves)
- 1 small sweet onion
- 2 celery
Preheat oven to 375F. Mix all ingredients together in large bowl. Roll mixture into balls and place in silicon muffin tins. Bake for 40 minutes. Makes 12 muffins.
