Turkey Mini Meatloaves and Tasty Tools next tool event!

This months Tasty Tools event http://joelens.blogspot.com/2008/04/tasty-tools-scoops.html Joelen’s Culinary Adventures,  was to challenge us to use scoops in our kitchens. I had an ice cream scooper that I have only used for ice cream, but wanted to see what else I could use it for. I found this recipe from Noodle Nights and Muffins Mornings blog and found using the scooper was perfect for making these mini-meatloaves. It portioned out just the right amount of meatloaf and dropped into the cupcake pan easily.  See where you can use your scoopers in your kitchen other than ice cream! 🙂

Check out Joelen’s blog on May 5th, 08 for all the SCOOPER results!


Using the tool:




1.25 lbs. Ground All White-Meat Turkey Breast
1 egg beaten
1 14 ounce can of diced tomato(juices drained)
1/4 cup Italian Bread Crumbs
1/4 Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese plus additional for topping
1 Pepper chopped
1 Yellow Onion chopped finely
1/2 tbsp. of Italian seasonings
1 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400. Generously spray muffin tray with cooking spray.Combine all ingredients in large bowl and mix using hands until well blended. Using a large spoon(or ice cream scoop), generously fill each muffin slot. Sprinkle additional Parmesancheese on top of each ‘muffin’. Bake for 25 minutes or until a light crust has formed on each muffin. Let stand 5 mins. to set.
