Description

Meatloaf Muffins are a fabulous alternative to regular meatloaf. Kids just love them and mini meatloaf muffins cook much faster than traditional meatloaf.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground turkey or ground beef
  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs or oatmeal (I always use oatmeal)
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg or 2
  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce (Instead of the tomato sauce, I usually substitute with around 1/4 cup of ketchup in the meat mixture and at least another 1/4 cup for the top)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • several shakes of Worcestershire sauce
  • A couple of handfuls of whatever other veggies you have on hand… (onions, mushrooms, zucchini, broccoli, carrots, spinach, lentils…)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, but only use about ¼ of the tomato sauce/ketchup in the meat mixture.
  3. Press the meat into the muffin cups (you should be able to get eight to 10 out of this amount of meat).
  4. Top with a dollop of tomato sauce/ketchup on each one.
  5. Cook for 30-35 minutes.
  6. Serve two per person.

Notes

Nutritional Info: Using 1 egg, 93/7 Ground Turkey, 1/2 cup of ketchup and dividing into 10 meatloaf muffins, the calorie count is about 110 per muffin. (Pretty good if you ask me!)
