Happy Sunday one and all! How’s everyone’s day been? Maybe a little less snowy than mine perhaps?
The weather really isn’t pleasant in London today. The flakes are coming down like it’s nobody’s business! Driving conditions are terrible; I actually went sliding for the length of two houses today while driving back from the mall with Chelsea. It was so scary. I really don’t like driving to begin with, actually, so when I went sliding down the street today I got quite shook up. Unfortunately, the poor driving conditions resulted in a cancellation of my usual dinner date with my two good friends! I was thoroughly looking forward to cooking a new recipe with them tonight, but I guess it will just have to wait until next Sunday now!
I was planning today’s post on sharing the new recipe that my friends and I were going to make tonight, but since our dinner date has been cancelled, I had to think up of a new idea for a post…
Seeing as how I am always busy in the kitchen, I have countless recipes in my folder that I intend on sharing with you all at some point in time, so I picked one and am excited to share it!
I chose to share my recipe for turkey muffins today because I think it is an extremely appropriate recipe for a Sunday seeing as how Sundays mark the end of a weekend and the beginning of a new work/school week for many of us.
Turkey muffins are something I always have on hand for myself throughout the busy school week, so if you use Sundays as your “food prep” days before the busy week begins – I hope you try out this recipe!
Lately, I have noticed that many bloggers have been testing out Jamie Eason’s recipes that she has posted on Bodybuilding.com. So, you may be familiar with her recipe for turkey muffins already; however, the recipe I am about to share is my own variation
Easy Turkey Muffins
1 package ground turkey (or chicken)
1/3 cup jalapeño peppers, seeded and chopped
Place all ingredients in mixing bowl.
Mix all ingredients together until evenly distributed within the ground meat.
Roll into handful-sized balls and place in muffin tins
Bake in oven at 400 degrees F for 20 – 25 min. or until internal thermometer reads 165 degrees F.
Enjoy warm or let cool and freeze for later on in the week! (I usually defrost mine in the microwave when I am on break from classes!)
See easy peasy, right!? They are fun, too. You can switch up the add-ins for each different batch you make! Currently, I have the jalapeño flavour that I just shared with you and a spinach and sundried tomato flavour in my freezer right now I like them because they are a quick snack when you need to fuel those muscles throughout the day!
When I made these tasty little guys, I used a new kitchen product that my Mom and Dad bought me for Christmas!
Silicone muffin trays!
I actually got an entire set of silicone baking wear for Christmas and love it. These silicone products are really nice to use because your baking slides out of each muffin mold easily with very little or no oil/grease at all (the turkey muffins do not require greasing!). I also liked the shape of my muffins after using the silicone muffin tray and they didn’t stick at all! When I washed the silicone products by hand, they were easy to clean, so I thought that the next time that I used them, I would put them into the dishwasher to see how they would clean (they are dishwasher safe!), but the dishwasher was unable to get them clean, so I had to wash them by hand anyway.
Overall, I like my silicone baking set that I got from my parents I am planning on making a lentil loaf with the cake pan sometime this week!
The baking set came with a variety of different molds and I can’t wait to give each a try! So far I have only used the muffin tins and the silicone liner (which is not pictured).
Seeing as how I haven’t been as productive as I was yesterday in the homework area, I should get going and do some of these thousands of readings that I have to do for my classes…
However, before I go – I have been reading and commenting on a lot more blogs lately, but the majority of my comments have been put into spam lately(!?), so go check your spam because you might just have a little comment waiting from me hehe!
Have a wonderful night friends!
See you all tomorrow!
Have you ever used silicone baking molds?
Do you use Sunday as a “food prep” day?
If you were to make these turkey muffins what would your add-ins be?
