Juicy Mini Turkey Muffins with Shredded Carrot and Yellow Bell Pepper

miniturkeymeatloafMeatloaf is a family favorite. We usually just make the traditional meat loafs but I had seen meatloaf muffins floating around the internet. I loved the idea because it is so easy to just grab them for lunch or dinner because it is already pre portioned. These turkey muffins are moist and more importantly very tasty.

For this recipe you could use any other ground meat you prefer, I prefer turkey. I also added shredded carrot to help add moistness, and yellow bell pepper for a pop of color. These little muffins are perfect for kids, my nephew loved them! I also added a bbq ketchup sauce before baking which was delicious!
