Turkey Dinner Muffins

Turkey Dinner Muffins

I know Thanksgiving is a few weeks away but you may want to keep this recipe -- it is a great way to use up those leftovers.  I have even made these muffins with stuffing, cooked turkey and gravy that had been previously frozen; just unthaw first before making.  I thought this actually tasted even better the next day!

Turkey Dinner Muffins
4 cups stuffing
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 eggs
2 Tablespoon butter (melted), divided
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1/4 cup carrots, chopped
1/4 cup celery, chopped
2 cups cooked turkey, chopped
1/2 teaspoon parsley
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon sage
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 1/4 cups turkey gravy

Combing stuffing, broth, eggs and 1 Tablespoon butter.  Press into bottom and up sides of greased muffin cups, dividing equally among 18 cups.

Saute onion, carrots and celery in 1 Tablespoon butter for 5 minutes.

Stir vegetables with turkey, seasonings and 1 cup of gravy.  If a little too thick you can add a little milk to thin.

Divide into 18 equal portions and add to middle of stuffing cups.

Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 18 - 20 minutes.  Let them sit for a few minutes then scoop out. Drizzle with heated gravy (can just warm in the microwave) and serve.

 Servings:  18 muffins
