Savory Thanksgiving Day Cupcake


1 1/2 cups finely chopped onion (about 1 small onion)
4 garlic cloves minced
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 medium carrot, cut into 1/8-inch dice
1 package mushrooms, trimmed and finely chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
1 cup Panko bread crumbs
1 cup 1% milk
1 whole large egg, lightly beaten
1 large egg white, lightly beaten
1 1/4 pound ground turkey
Prepared mashed potatoes ( one large potato or 3 small)
Prepared stuffing (half a package)
Whole jellied cranberry sauce.

Preheat oven to 400°F.
Stir together bread crumbs and milk in a small bowl and let stand while preparing the next step.

Cook onion and garlic in oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over moderate heat, stirring, until onion is softened, about 2 minutes. Add carrot and cook, stirring, until softened. Add mushrooms, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender. Stir in Worcestershire sauce and parsley. Remove from heat and allow to cool for a couple of minutes or until its cool enough to touch.

Add to your bread crumb mixture your egg, egg white, turkey and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Mix with your cooled veggie mixture well with your hands.

Using a standard cupcake pan lined with paper or aluminum cupcake liners, divide meat mixture equally into the 12 liners. Make a hole in each mini loaf with the end of a wooden spoon. Bake the cupcakes for about 20 min or until the internal temperature reaches 170°F.

While cupcakes are baking make your stuffing and mashed potatoes. I like Stouffers chicken stuffing so that is what I used and I make my mashed potatoes from scratch.

After the cupcakes come out of the oven scoop some stuffing into each hole you made before baking. Use a pastry bag to pipe on your prepared mashed potatoes to look like icing, and top with a tablespoon of cranberry sauce.

Hint: If you don’t like cranberry sauce, top your mashed potatoes with a pad of butter and some gravy.
