Try this recipe for those days when you are in a hurry!  Make a batch of these at the beginning of the week & grab them as you need a quick, clean meal!  Anytime I eat these around someone they always ask me for the recipe!  They are good hot or cold & I have recently started putting a little bit of mustard on top...DELICIOUS!

  3. I make these once week to have as my lunch/snack for the week, but I add a ton of other veggies - mushrooms, peppers, spinach, carrots, basically any veggies that I have in my crisper! :)

    1. Yum! That sounds good (well except for the mushrooms). ;-) Thanks for the ideas!

  4. Just found your site, and while i had seen these made by Jamie Eason, I was always skeptical to try them. A meat muffin didn't sound overly appealing. :-) But after seeing them on your site, I decided to give them a try. They're actually really good! I've been topping mine with a little Walden Farms BBQ. Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Absolutely! I make them every week and I LOVE them (especially with a little spicy mustard!)

  5. Made these today. They are great! Looking forward to having them around as a quick, healthy bite to eat. My fiance likes them, too! *Don't go overboard on the chipotle seasoning or pepper. It's good flavor, but mine came out a little strong.

    1. LG, I am convinced that the garlic brings out the flavoring of the chipotle seasoning. They are fabulous though!

  6. The nutritional info...is that per meatball?

    ReplyDelete
  7. My muffins came out a little dry. Any suggestions?

    1. Oh no! Did you use enough veggies? We use 1 cup of celery & 1 cup of onion. Also, were you using real egg whites or the carton of egg whites?

      Delete
    2. Whitney, I used the carton of egg whites. I think I made it all according to the recipe. Maybe I cooked it a little longer. They were very good, but I do need to moisten them up a little. I have another unrelated question, Whitney. I want to make green beans almondine, but am not going to use butter. What do you suggest as a substitute? I'm loving your recipes and my weight loss!

  8. I made some tweaks because I didn't have quite everything. No chipotle pepper spice, but I know that would be mighty tasty. I also added chopped red pepper and grated carrots as well. Delish!

  9. I just made these and wanted to check the calories, I'm coming up with 185 calories for one muffin? I entered the recipe into calorie count and this was what it came back with. Can you verify?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. When I did them with my ingredients I came back with approx 80 per muffin. Are you using turkey or chicken?

      Delete
    2. I used ground chicken breast and entered that into the program and I appoligize I got 121 calories per muffin.

      Delete
    3. I'm using lean ground turkey and getting about 150 calories per muffin. almost double 80. :/

      Delete
    4. Per the original website comments, 80 cal for 18 servings... I was also wondering, and hope this helps.

  10. Just a note: I found the chipotle chili pepper at Walmart.

    1. Thanks Jennifer! Tiffany was able to find it there too but it isn't at mine! It's okay though because I bought all that WF had last time. ;-)

  11. Could you substitute chili powder for the chipotle chili pepper? I almost had a heart attack when I saw the price of that spice on Amazon (I don't have a Whole Food's near me, so that's where I'd have to buy it)! Or can you leave it out entirely? Also, are you supposed to put garlic power AND garlic cloves? I was confused by the way it was listed in the ingredients! Thanks! :)

    1. Michelle, you can substitute the chili powder, but it will change the taste of the dish slightly. Also, you can find the chipotle chili powder at some WalMart stores. I have also used Mexican Chili Powder in this recipe and it was fabulous!

  12. Thoughts on ground turkey vs ground Turkey breast?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ashley, When available, you definitely want to go with the ground turkey breast! Regular ground turkey (often 85%/15%) can contain as much fat as ground beef and outweight the benefits of switching protein sources. Definitely go for the leanest variety ground turkey you can find.

  13. Can I use Old Fashioned Quaker Oats? I'm out of the "Quick Cooking" kind. What's the difference?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I've used both for this recipe. The only difference will be that the regular oats (vs the Quick Cooking variety) will be crunchier since they do not absorb as much moisture.

  14. I made these today as well as the egg muffins, and I had some extra carrots and shredded zucchini so I added it to my meat mixture. Delish.

    1. I love them too! That's a great add! Thanks for sharing.

  15. Made these the other day.. they are good! But they leave a bad after taste in my mouth! Not sure why... but they are good! i eat them with mustard and a tiny bit of ketchup.

    1. Kristin - it could be a couple things. Personally, I'm not a big turkey fan so we use ground chicken. Also, make sure it's extra lean turkey/turkey breast or just get ground chicken breasts. It could also be the garlic or chipotle pepper spice...try reducing those a bit along with a change to chicken and see if that helps.

      I've noticed that when we've cooked them with lean turkey (some dark meat), the taste is very strong.

      Hope that helps!

  16. What is the shelf life on these muffins? Are they freezeable?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I would equate them to the meatloaf recipe on this site. I make that and keep enough for the week in the fridge ad freeze the rest. When I want them, I'll take them out of the freezer and just leave them out at work. By the time I eat them (usually my pm meal) they are ready to go. I microwave them but they are just as good as they were fresh!

      Delete
  17. CRAP! I forgot to put the egg whites in. So unlike me to forget something. I hope they will still turn out ok. I am not a fan of onions or celery so I used a red bell pepper and zucchini.

    1. Oh no Leda! I hope they still turned out! I forgot to put the protein powder in her protein bars one time! It happens! :-)

    2. They were delicious! My boyfriend was a little skeptical at first but he loved them too! I will be making these at least once a week. Perfect for an on the go snack at work!

  18. I noticed on the site you provided Jamie's video for this recipe says that these are 182 calories each but your recipe says they are 80, do you know which one is accurate? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete

    1. I noticed the same thing. on the video she says about 80 calories each, yet listed on the webpage it states 182 calories. there seemed to be a debate on her video post as well, but never any clarification that I could find. when I enter this into my calorie counter I'm getting about 150 each muffin.

      Delete
    2. I'm wondering the same thing! I'd like verification on calorie count.

    3. Per the original website comments, 80 cal for 18 servings... I was also wondering, and hope this helps.

    4. The website states 182 calories, and as it states, that's for 2 muffins. So 1 muffin would be approximately 90 calories.

  19. Are the macros for one muffin?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Just made these today....very good with a spicy kick. Could use an accompanying red sauce

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm curious why your nutrition content doesn't match the same as her page that you link to.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The nutrition info on the bodybuilding.com recipe page is for a serving size of 2 muffins. 182 calories for 2 muffins, so approx 90 calories for one.

  22. Im Curious about the calories. .. on jamie easton's website it says 121 calories per meatball but yours says 80......

    ReplyDelete
  23. After trying Jamie's turkey/chicken burgers (and LOVING them) I was really excited to try these. What a let down. Thank goodness for BBQ sauce, otherwise these would have been a waste of good food. I'm going to try again using ground chicken instead of turkey. Hopefully the chicken will yield better results.
