Mini-Turkey Meatballs

Yield: 20 mini-meatballs


1 pound ground turkey (97% lean)
2 teaspoons Crazy Jane Seasoning
1/4-1/3 cup Lyon Catsup with Bordeaux Wine (or any
interesting catsup)


Perforated Baking Sheet (MA435310)
Mini-Muffin Tray-20 (FP002031)
Mixing Bowl (MA017025)
Set of 3 Spatulas (MA113005)

These mini-meatballs were prepared by a Maggie at her Rendez-Vous.
They could be made with ground beef; or placed in any of the Demarle trays.
Adjust your oven temperature and baking times accordingly.
Portion control is "king" again!


Place oven rack in center position; preheat to 350 degrees.
Place the Mini-Muffin Tray on the Perforated Baking Sheet.
Mix turkey, seasoning, and catsup in the Mixing Bowl.
Form into mini-turkey balls and place in the tray.
Bake 12-17 minutes. (Turkey does not get as brown as hamburger,
so don't go by the color to check doneness.)

all excess moisture. Finish by squeezing out the last moisture.

and cook for 5 minutes.

Take 1 sheet of pastry and open it on the Roul'Pat.

Chicken Chili Cheese Cups

2 eggs

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

1/4 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. pepper

1 cup cooked chicken, finely diced

1 (4-ounce) can diced green chilies

2 Tbs. finely chopped cilantro

1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack Cheese

30 mini phyllo shells

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, salt and pepper. In another bowl, toss together the chicken, chilies, cilantro and cheese.

Place the phyllo shells on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (or on a silpat). Spoon 1 rounded teaspoon of chicken filling into each shell, then add about 1 tsp of the egg mixture. Let the shells sit for about a minute so the egg can settle to the bottom. Then add about another teaspoon of egg to each shell, filling it close to the top.

Bake the cups until the custard is set, about 15 minutes.

After cups have cooled, freeze them for up to 2 weeks. To serve, simply reheat them in a 350 degree oven until heated through, 10-15 minutes.

Makes 30 quiches.

Brazilian Cheese Puffs

Published February 17, 2009 in FoodDay

Makes 24 appetizers


· 2 cups tapioca flour (also called tapioca starch; see note) Look for tapioca flour (we used Bob's Red Mill brand) at New Seasons and other stores that carry a wide selection of natural foods.

· 1¼ teaspoons salt

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup milk
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons shredded sharp cheddar cheese


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the tapioca flour, salt and cayenne. In a small saucepan, combine the milk and oil and bring just to a simmer. Pour the liquid over the flour mixture and then combine with the mixer's paddle attachment. Let the mixture cool for 5 to 10 minutes.

Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the cheeses to form a thick, sticky dough. Fill each cup of a mini-muffin pan with a heaping tablespoon of the dough. Put the pan in the oven, and bake until the puffs are browned and firm to the touch, 25 to 30 minutes.
