Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Brush a muffin pan (with 6 jumbo or 12 medium cups) with EVOO.

Step 2

For the BBQ sauce: Combine the ketchup, chipotle puree, maple syrup, brown sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic and pepper to taste in a small pot. Heat until the mixture starts to bubble, then reduce the heat to low and simmer until thickened, about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 3

For the meatloaves: Pulse the stuffing cubes in a food processor until crumbs form. Transfer to a bowl and moisten with chicken stock.

Step 4

Combine the turkey, poultry seasoning, cumin and some salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the moistened breadcrumbs, bell pepper, cilantro, scallions, eggs and cheese and mix gently to combine. Fill the muffin cups with the meatloaf mixture, mounding it a bit in the centers. Top with BBQ sauce. Place the pan on a baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes.

Step 5

For the mashed sweet potatoes: While the meatloaves are cooking, peel and cube the sweet potatoes. Place in a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, then drain. Mash with the chicken stock, thyme, orange juice and salt and pepper to taste.

Step 6

Serve the meatloaves with the mashed sweet potatoes.
