Italian Turkey Muffins

Happy Monday!  If you’re looking for a quick, easy and satisfying lunch or light dinner recipe, well, you’ve come to the right place!   I’m always thinking of, or looking for, either main course meals that I can easily prepare after a busy day at work or something healthy that I can whip together and bring to the office for lunch.  And even better, if I can double a recipe that allows me to enjoy it one night with my family and then have enough to bring it with me the next day for lunch, now that’s perfection in my book!  These simple Italian Turkey Muffins are just that — they’re quick, tasty, my boys love them, and they travel well!

Italian Turkey Muffins

1.25 lb. lean ground turkey breast
1 cup marinara sauce
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

(Optional add ins:  1/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese, 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning)

Heat your oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix until well combined.  Divide mixture equally into a 6-cup muffin pan.  Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until an internal thermometer reads 165 degrees.  This recipe easily doubles if you have a large family or want to have extra for lunch the next day.

Pop out of the muffin pan and serve with your favorite salad.  To re-heat for a yummy lunch at the office (or at home), place on a microwave safe dish and cook for 1 minute, or until hot.
