Ingredients:
1-2 packages of lean ground turkey breast
1 grated zucchini
1-2 grated carrots

1 head of garlic chopped
1 onion chopped
herbs and ground pepper
worchestire sauce to taste
5-6 mushrooms finely chopped
1-2 eggs
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes chopped
1/2 cup grated cheese (whatever you choose), we used parmesan and swiss

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400°F and set aside your muffin pan near by since your hands will be pretty messy after this. Sautée onions and garlic. Combine turkey and all ingredients in a large bowl, mix together with your hands. Create balls large enough to fit into your muffin pan, don’t be afraid to make them large.

Once your tray is full, place in oven for 25-30 mins depending on size of your “muffins” be sure to place a bake sheet tray under the muffin tray, because the juices do spill over during cooking. Once cooking time has completed, remove from oven and let sit for 10 minutes.

Creative twist:
Make mashed yams or potato and use to put on top of your “muffins” as “frosting”
