Turkey Meatloaf Muffins

When I think of meatloaf I think of heavy food best enjoyed on a cold winter day. I wanted to lighten it up into a dish that is appropriate for summer.


It’s perfect for easy summer entertaining. This is especially true if you enjoy Memorial Day inside because hate the heat or are scared of bugs (or both!!) like me.

The Turkey Meatloaf Muffins are  made with turkey, which means it’s lower on fat but still big on flavor. I used Shady Brook Farms turkey in my recipe. I love how easy it is to find their pre ground turkey right at my local super market It’s fresh so no defrosting needed!. Best of all they do NOT use growth promoting antibiotics.

You can see this right on the package with the USDA Process Verified Sticker.

Their meat is sourced from 700 independent farmers, which I can feel good about supporting.

I’ve also included a generous amount of zucchini which our neighbors always bless us with during the summer season from their gardens. I hope you find time to enjoy these Turkey Meatloaf Muffins!
