Adobo-Glazed Mini Turkey Loaves Recipe


4 Adobo-Glazed Mini Turkey Loaves served in a white plate with some vegetables
Serves 2 People


  • 1 slice light wheat bread, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 pound ground turkey (dark meat)
  • 1/2 pound ground turkey breast
  • 1/2 cup Onion and Garlic Mix
  • 1/2 cup Broccoli and Red Bell Pepper Mix
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 2 egg whites
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons tomato paste
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder


  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons adobo sauce
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium chicken broth
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Heat oven to 350°.

Onion and Garlic Mix: Finely dice 3 large onions and 5 cloves garlic. Heat a heavy-bottomed skillet over high heat. Add 1 tbsp oil. Cook garlic and onion, stirring occasionally, until soft, 6 minutes.

Broccoli and Red Bell Pepper Mix: Finely dice 1 head broccoli and 3 large red bell peppers, seeded and cored. Heat a heavy-bottomed skillet over high heat. Add 1 tbsp oil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables turn slightly brown, 3 minutes.

Loaves Soak bread and milk in a bowl for 10 minutes. Combine remaining loaf ingredients in another bowl; add bread and milk; mix well. Scoop 1/3 cup of mixture into each of 7 nonstick muffin tin cups. Bake 10 minutes.

Quick tip: While loaves bake, prepare glaze by combining all glaze ingredients in a bowl.

Spread 1 tbsp glaze on each loaf. Continue to bake until internal temperature reaches 160°, 15 to 20 minutes more.

Remove loaves from oven; let cool. If not serving immediately, cover remaining loaves and freeze.

To reheat Microwave on high 3 minutes or bake at 375° for 30 minutes.
