1 pound 99% ground turkey
3 cups baby spinach (about 3 ounces)
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
6 tablespoons light butter
1 1/4 cups lowfat buttermilk
2 large eggs
1 cup light shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2/3 cup small-diced apple
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives
Cook ground turkey until browned.
Meanwhile, arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat to 375°F. Coat the wells of a standard 12-well muffin pan generously with cooking spray; set aside. Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pepper in a large bowl and set aside. Melt the butter and place in a medium bowl to cool to room temperature.
Add the buttermilk and eggs to the butter and whisk until combined. Pour the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture and mix with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula until just combined; some lumps are fine. Add the sausage mixture, sprinkle with the cheese and apple, and fold until just combined. Divide the batter among the muffin wells; they will be very full. Sprinkle with the chives.
Bake until the tops just begin to brown and a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Place the pan on a wire rack and cool for 5 minutes. Run a thin knife around each muffin to loosen, then transfer to the rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
