Mini Meatloaf in a Muffin Tin Recipe


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


  • 1 pound ground turkey or ground beef
  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs or oatmeal (Either works, but I now use oatmeal)
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce (Instead of the tomato sauce, I often substitute with around 1/4 cup of ketchup in the meat mixture and at least another 1/4 cup for the top. Personal choice to use the ketchup vs tomato sauce I do prefer the taste of ketchup – must be the added sugar.)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • several shakes of Worcestershire sauce (about a teaspoon)
  • A couple of handfuls of whatever other veggies you have on hand… (onions, mushrooms, zucchini, broccoli, carrots, spinach, lentils…)


    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. Reserve the rest for the tops of the meatloaf muffins.
    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.


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!)
