From the Archives

I've started combing through old files in an attempt to organize and clean up my computer. In doing so, I've found a bunch of photos of food I never posted, recipes I may have partially forgotten, and some really crappy lighting. At least I've fixed that problem, for the most part! This one is from last October, and I remember, at least vaguely, that they were really good. They have bacon in them, so how could they not be? I must have planned on posting them, since I have in-progress shots, but who knows why I never did. Lazy? Me? Never.

BBQ Bleu Cheese Mini Meatloaves (aka Meat Muffins)

1 lb. ground turkey
3 slices of bacon. cut into quarters
1/2 cup bleu cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup BBQ sauce, divided
salt and pepper
Worcestershire sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1 egg white
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. In a large bowl, gently mix turkey, garlic, egg white, 1/4 cup of BBQ sauce, and bread crumbs; season with salt and pepper and a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce. Divide into twelve portions. Place each portion into muffin cups, making a small well in the center. Divide bleu cheese evenly among muffins. Fold turkey mixture over the cheese and pinch to seal. Top each muffin with a piece of bacon and brush with some of the remaining BBQ sauce. Bake for 25 minutes, basting again with remaining BBQ sauce halfway through cooking and at the end.
