Leslie Cecil


1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup onion, diced
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
3/4 cup carrot, grated
Pepper, to taste
Kosher salt, to taste
2 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
1 cup bread crumbs (I prefer Italian bread crumbs)
⅓ cup milk
1 egg
1 egg white
1 pound ground turkey

Whipped Mashed Potatoes (for topping, if desired)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease six muffin tins.

In a small bowl, combine the ketchup, brown sugar and one teaspoon of the Worcestershire sauce. Set aside. Heat the olive oil in a small skillet and saute the onion, garlic, and carrot until the onion and carrot are soft. Stir in the pepper, salt, and remaining Worcestershire sauce and then transfer the mixture into a large bowl. Pour the breadcrumbs, milk, and parsley into the bowl.

Add in the eggs, turkey, and two tablespoons of the ketchup mixture. Mix everything together until well combined (I prefer to use my hands). Divide the mixture into six equal portions. Form each portion into a ball and pat down into a greased muffin tin, filling the tin with the mixture and leaving the top domed.

Spoon a bit of the remaining ketchup mixture on top of each muffin and spread evenly. Reserve the remaining sauce to serve alongside the meatloaf.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes at 400 degrees, or until turkey is fully cooked. Remove muffins from tins (I find it's helpful to run a knife along the inside of each tin and use a spoon to help lift them out.)

If desired, pipe whipped mashed potatoes on top of each muffin and garnish with a drizzle of gravy.
