Shred the apple and onion using the large holes of a box grater. Cheese grits and a salad make the perfect complements.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°. Gently combine ground turkey, next 6 ingredients, and 1/2 cup cheese just until combined, using hands. Spoon turkey mixture into 12 lightly greased muffin cups.

Step 2

Bake at 375° for 16 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining 3/4 cup cheese. Bake 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and a meat thermometer inserted into centers of meatloaves registers 165°.

Step 3

*Fine, dry breadcrumbs may be substituted.

Step 4

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Buitoni Pesto With Basil.

I was a little apprehensive when I pulled these out of the oven...they don't look all that appetizing. Ground turkey just doesn't cook up "pretty." Don't let that fool you, though...they're delicious! The pesto packs a huge punch of flavor. I thought they'd be dry, with no sauce and lean turkey, but they're surprisingly moist. Love the "muffin" presentation, too.

This recipe is a very welcoming change to the traditional meatloaf. It was delicious and something that I'll definitely make again. My husband added a bit of hot sauce (Siracha or Tapatio will work) while eating it which gave it a nice kick. Super good!!

These are quick, flavorful and moist. They are a great addition to recipes for ground turkey. I made some gnocchi and tossed them in a little more of the pesto as a side dish.
