Mini Apple-Cheddar Turkey Meatloaves

It has been a long time since I have posted a recipe. Thanks to everyone who has kept this blog alive! -Kim

This recipe has become a favorite of my family's. Every one of my kids will happily eat it and that is saying a lot! I also love it because it bakes really fast compared to other meat loaf recipes and it is really moist and flavorful. It comes from Southern Living.

1 to 1 1/2 lb. ground turkey
1/4 cup Japanese breadcrumbs (panko)
1 medium onion, shredded
1 medium-size Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and shredded
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. pepper
1 1/4 cups (5 oz.) freshly shredded cheddar cheese, divided

Preheat oven to 375. Gently combine ground turkey, next 6 ingredients, and 1/2 cup cheese just until combined. Spoon turkey mixture into 12 lightly greased muffin cups. Bake at 375 for 16 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining 3/4 cup cheese. Bake 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted.

I made these for dinner tonight Kim and they were really good! I'm not a huge fan of meatloaf, but I loved these. What a nice variation! My kids liked them too, which is always a nice plus!
