Curried Turkey & Sweet Potato Cupcake
I made these today, and I was so pleased with how they turned out. I saw a beef & garnet potato cupcake on the Whole30 feed a month ago & I’ve been wanting to make something of the sort since. Today was as good a day as any, especially since I’m hosting the Autoimmune Paleo Instagram page. I absolutely love the colors and can't wait to serve them at my next party! What a fun AIP meal! It’s not as time consuming as it looks & it’s enticing for the whole family, especially the little ones. I know my three year old was so excited about eating “the purple” that he didn’t even pause to notice he was actually eating a vegetable! Another great thing about recipes like these is that you can pack them will all sorts of goodies, really get bang for you buck in the nutrient density department. A few ways to do that: adding bone marrow to your mash, greens and/or beef gelatin to the meat!
- 1 lb 1 lb 1 lb Ground Turkey, dark meat
- 2 pieces 2 pieces 2 pieces Bacon, I use Pederson's Natural Farms brand, it's sugar free and amazing
