I made this super quickly last night. I then ate it two different ways (see below) again today. It is delicious! Turkey is a leaner meat and a great alternative for those trying to reduce their red meat intake.

*Makes approximately 12 muffins.


  • Ground turkey (2 pounds, or more if needed)
  • Italian seasoning
  • Ground black pepper
  • One handful of fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1-2 garlic cloves
  • Olive oil (in my opinion, you can never have enough)



  2. Sautee the garlic cloves in olive oil until slightly browned. Turn off. Let cool. (Key—let cool)
  3. Take ground turkey, place in a bowl will all seasonings and cooled olive oil with garlic.
  4. Mush altogether (I get right in there and use my hands)
  5. Scoop out 1/4 cup of mixture into muffin tray slots
  6. Conventional bake at 325 degrees for approximately 45 minutes or until cooked thoroughly


This goes AMAZING with a side of mashed avocado (avocado, olive oil and lime with pepper-like a quick guacamole) or you can add this turkey muffin to sautéed spinach. I love it both ways.

Happy Eating!!!
