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.
