turkey kale nuggets

Today’s post is extra special because it’s my first time posting for the Recipe ReDux! Each month, bloggers post recipes based on a specific theme that has been kept secret until the date of posting. This month’s theme is Treasured Kitchen Tool.


I chose the muffin tin that was handed down from my mother’s kitchen. Actually, I kind of stole it from her, but she didn’t mind. It’s just a muffin tin after all. A dirty one, at that. But that’s what I like about it. It’s weathered and full of love. I have a vivid memory of my Nana and I making Funfetti cupcakes with this tin, and it also played a large role each Christmas when my mom made her famous Almond Praline Cookies. And now I have it, and I’m making cupcakes and muffins and all sorts of things in it.

You won’t find any sugar or sweets in todays’ recipe, but you will find healthy, clean ingredients like ground turkey, kale, and oats. (although, I might have to share my mom’s cookie recipe next Christmas). These little nuggets are perfect for dinner, lunch, lunch to go, or maybe even breakfast. Pair them with some brown rice or quinoa, and even try them on your kids with ketchup on the side!
