HUGE Breakfast muffins that truly are incredibly delicious! Pair with your favorite fruit!


1 pound 99% ground turkey

3 cups baby spinach (about 3 ounces)

Cooking spray

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

  1. Cook ground turkey until browned.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
