Spicy Turkey Mini Meatloaves

We've really been enjoying switching from regular sausage and hamburger to the turkey versions of those. Today I wanted to come up with a different plan for the turkey. I settled on Turkey Meatloaf. This recipe is SO GOOD and moist!

Spicy Turkey Mini Meatloaves

2 lbs ground turkey
1 cup TVP (textured vegetable protein)
1/4 cup chopped onion or 2 Tbsp onion flakes
3 garlic cloves or 2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp dry mustard powder or 4 tsp mustard
1 1/2 tsp thyme
1 1/2 tsp sage
1 tsp pepper
2 tsp salt
hot pepper flakes according to taste
4 Tbsp SF catsup
3-4 Tbsp worcestershire sauce
2 eggs
1/2 cup water

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Soak TVP in water for 10 minutes while mixing the following ingredients.
3. Mix all ingredients. Some people used their hands, a fork worked just fine for me.
4. Add soaked TVP.
5. Spray muffin tins and scoop about 1/2 cup  mixture into each one. (Should fill about 12.)
6. Bake in oven 20-25 minutes. Last 5 minutes but a dollop (about 1 tsp.) of catsup on each one.
7. Internal temp of meatloaves should reach about 155 degrees.

OPTIONAL: Could add 1/2 cup chopped veggies, or 1 1/2 cups fresh spinach to give it more texture and healthy vegetables.
MORE OPTIONS: Instead of TVP, you could use 1 1/2-2 cups crushed pork rinds and 1/2 cup flax meal.
