Sam's Birthday Cupcakes

Last Sunday was Sam's birthday (he turned 4!) and in his honor I prepared his favorite birthday cupcakes! Since today is the Martha Stewart Show airing--10:00 AM EST on the Hallmark Channel--on which Chef Harry is going to make a delightful dish for his dog Blitz (it's in the cookbook!), I thought I would share the recipe for Sam's Birthday Cupcakes with you.

1 lb. ground turkey
2 eggs or the equivalent in Egg Beaters
about 2 cups uncooked Quaker Oats

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease a muffin or cupcake pan. I use Pam to spray the sections
Combine raw turkey, eggs and oatmeal until it is a consistency that holds together when formed. You may have to use more or less oatmeal.
Press the turkey mixture into the cupcake tins almost all the way to the top. This doesn't rise so you don't have to worry about it cooking over.
Cook in the oven for about 30-40 minutes until browned and when a toothpick inserted in the center of each cupcake comes out clean. You want to make sure they're cooked through.
Allow to cool and serve to the birthday pup and his/her friends!

And if any of you are in the vicinity of the Penn campus tonight, Chef Eileen Watkin is doing a cooking demo at the Inn at Penn, complete with doggie bags. We will be signing books so stop by!
