You’ll Need

  • 2 lbs ground turkey

  • ½ cup milk
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • Cranberries

Prep and Cook

  • 1
    Place the ground turkey, panko, egg yolk, mustard, jelly, sage, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl, and mix together with your hands until all of the ingredients are combined.
  • 2
    Lightly spray a muffin tin with non-stick spray. Press the meat mixture into the muffin cups, filling to the top.
  • 3
    Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until completely cooked through.
  • 4
    While the muffins are cooking, bring a pot of salted water to a boil and cook the potatoes until they are fork tender, about 15 minutes.
  • 5
    Drain the potatoes and mashed them with milk and butter, making them as smooth as possible.
  • 6
    Remove the muffins from the oven and allow to cool slightly. Take the muffins out of the baking pan and place them on a platter. Top with a dollop of potoatoes (or pipe the potatoes on using a piping bag) and then garnish with a sprinkling of sage and a fresh cranberry.
