Thanksgiving Yummies-Turkey Meatloaf Cupcakes with Mashed Yam Frosting

Sunday night I said "turkey" while standing in the kitchen and immediately  heard a thunder of galloping paws and had five expectant faces looking up at me.   So I wanted to participate in the        



  dinner party and   Tasty Tuesday  even though my camera is still in the shop, the shop being Best Buy's Geek Squad.    So I don't have any pictures of the Thanksgiving inspired treats I made my dogs this year.  Its just as well because they didn't look lovely, although they where gulped up with enthusiasm.  Here is a picture of Sweet Tubby dressed in a Native American vest, a costume from three years ago, to accompany the recipe:







Turkey Meatloaf Cupcakes with Mashed Yam Frosting


  • 1 1lb ground turkey
  • 1 12 oz bag of Cascadian Farm's mixed frozen vegetable
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup of wheat germ
Preheat the oven to 350 and spray a 12 cup muffin pan with non-stick spray.  Stir all of the meatloaf ingredients together in a large bowl and spoon into the muffin pan cups.  Bake 45 minutes.

Mashed Yam Frosting
2 to 3 yams
Black Strap Molasses (optional)

Poke yams all over with a fork and microwave on high for 10 to 15 minutes or until tender.  Cool.  Cut yams in half and scoop flesh, discarding the skins.  Mash with a fork and bit of blackstrap molasses, if you have any, about a tablespoon.
Frost the meatloaf cupcakes with the yam mash and serve to any hungry dogs who are excited about thanksgiving.
