Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 30 muffin cups.
  2. Blend turkey in a food processor until pureed. Mix flour, white sugar, turkey, butter, canola oil, baking powder, vanilla extract, and salt together in a large bowl until all batter is moistened. Pour batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling them about 2/3 full.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool muffins in the tins for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
  4. Mix confectioners' sugar and gravy together in a bowl until glaze is smooth. Spoon glaze onto cooled cupcakes.

I am sorry, I hate to be rude. But this was disgusting. Don't waste your ingredients, even if they are only leftovers.

I was looking for a recipe for leftover turkey and when I read this one, I must admit I was very skeptical. I just had to try it. The frosting is tricky. I used much less gravy than the original to make it look more like a fluffy frosting rather than a glaze. It was good. I gave one cupcake to my dog, minus the frosting. She loved it. I will definitely make more of these for my granddogs and my pup. I am serving them to my hubby, along with other snacks, a veggie tray and dip while we watch the Browns/Steelers game today!
