Turkey Meatloaf Muffins

So here's another family favorite using ground turkey! Trust me, if my son will eat something made with more than two ingredients, you know its good.  These meatloaf muffins are high protein and quite filling. If you're a meat and potatoes family, try them with some sweet potatoes.  I always have a green vegetable with lunch and dinner, so other great sides are roasted asparagus or broccoli or, my old standby, steamed spinach! Chopped up, these are actually a great salad topper. Yummy! I'm hungry just thinking about them!

2 lbs ground turkey or chicken (if using turkey, I like to use a pound of 93/7 and a pound of 99/1)
3 egg whites
1 c. quick cooking oats
1/2 t. ground cumin
1/2 t. ground thyme
2 t. dry yellow mustard
2 t. black pepper
2 t. chipotle pepper spice
1 t. salt
2 T. garlic powder (or 2 cloves minced garlic)
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 celery stalks, finely chopped

Preheat oven to 375. Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with olive oil.  Mix all of the above ingredients together (use your hands to make sure it's mixed well!), then roll the mixture into 12 balls (each about the size of a racquetball) and put in pan.  Bake for 40 minutes.
