Ingredients

BBQ Sauce:
Meatloaves:
Mashed Sweet Potatoes:

Directions

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

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.

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

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.

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.

Serve the meatloaves with the mashed sweet potatoes.

Cook's Note

When you bring home a whole can of chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, seed the peppers and then puree them with the sauce in a food processor to make a smooth paste. Remove what you need and store the rest in a small plastic freezer bag (push the puree to the bottom of the bag to make a roll) in the freezer. The next time you need some, cut off about 1 inch of the puree for each tablespoon and return the rest to the freezer. The meatloaves can be cooled and wrapped in foil for a make-ahead meal. Freeze for up to 1 month or refrigerate for up to 1 week. Reheat in a 350 degree F oven for 30 minutes if refrigerated or 45 minutes if frozen.
