|Turkey Cranberry Muffins|
Thanksgiving is this week! Where does the time go? The family and I leave on Tuesday to go spend the holiday with my husband's family and enjoy all that is yummy. This really is one of my favorite holidays. There is no pressure to do anything other than show up and each year the girls and I get to learn to make more of the family favorites.
Like most families we will have a turkey this holiday and always plan enough for leftovers. My husband will eat turkey sandwiches until he can't stand it and then my father-in-law will make a nice soup out of the turkey bones. But what is to be done with all the leftovers when you are tired of turkey sandwiches? This year we will make these, simple and tasty:
Turkey and Cranberry Muffins
- 2 cups flour (we usually make one cup whole wheat flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup oil
- 1 cup juice (cranberry would be nice but apple would work well)
- 1 cup chopped turkey
- 1/2 cup cranberry jelly or jam
Place flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a medium bowl and mix. Add egg, oil, and juice to a large bowl and stir until egg is beaten and all ingredients are mixed together. Stir turkey and cranberries into egg mixture until combined. Add flour mix to wet ingredients and stir until incorporated. Do not over mix. Place batter in greased or lined muffin tins and bake at 350 degrees 15-20 minutes or until cooked through. Cool on a wire rack and then enjoy with butter.
