Foodie Friday: Recipe Makeover! Mini Turkey Meat Loaf

Hello all! Spring is here in full swing, although I have some IG friends who keep showing pictures of snow!  If that is you, then COME down to visit!  Sunscreen, the pool and picnics are what’s happening here!
It is Friday again, and I realized I have been a little quiet the past 2 weeks other than foodie posts!  I have been having MAJOR issues with sleep once again, and they have been taking a toll.  I am working extra hard on making sure that I am doing what I can to get that under control.  As I am sure most, if not all of you have suffered from sleep deprivation for a variety of reasons, and it stinks!  So, the blog has taken to the back burner for the time being.  I will still be doing my Friday Foodie posts, and hopefully as my sleep increases I will be back to more posts!  Thank you for your understanding and patience!
Back to Foodie Friday!  I am of course linking up with my favorite foodie ladies, Farrah from Fairyburger, Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama, Cassandra from Powered by BLING, and Emily from Whatever Floats Your Oats!

This week our theme was to do a recipe makeover!
Growing up, one of our common family meals was meatloaf.  Think beef, breadcrumbs and lots of ketchup.  As I grew and learned more about healthier options for cooking (plus I am not really a fan of red meat), I made some changes to make a bit of a healthier meat loaf!

Mini Turkey Meat Loaf
I lb ground turkey
1 egg
2 slices chopped turkey bacon
1/2 cup shredded cheese
1/2 c coconut or almond flour
1/4 cup honey bbq sauce
A mix of spices- I used about 1/4-1/2 tsp of Himalayan salt, pepper, paprika, garlic, thyme, & Italian seasoning.
Spoonful of coconut oil

1. Pre-heat the oven to 350*
2. Add all ingredients except the coconut oil to a large mixing bowl.  Mix well with hands.
3. Grease a muffin tin with coconut oil.
4. Place about 1/3 c turkey mixture into each muffin tin.
5. Cook for 20-25 min.
6. Enjoy!

Make sure you check out all the amazing ladies and their wonderful recipes!!
