Easy Mini Meatloaf muffins are made with ground beef or ground turkey and topped with a delicious meatloaf sauce.

I Love Mini Meatloaf Because:

  • More fun to eat!
  • Easy to make ahead, store and freeze
  • Faster cook time
  • Individual portion sizes

Mini Meatloaf In 5 Easy Steps:

  1. Combine meatloaf components. In a massive mixing bowl (the use of your arms or a large spoon), combine ground beef, breadcrumbs, onion, barbecue sauce, mustard, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper and egg.
  2. Press into muffin tins. Divide the meat among the 12 cups in a standard muffin tin, pressing them down to fill the cup.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes.
  4. Make the sauce. Mix all ingredients in a small bowl. Once muffins have cooked for 15 minutes, eliminate them and blot out any grease inside the muffin cups. Spoon the sauce over them.
  5. Return to oven for 10-15 minutes.

Just 4 simple ingredients such as nutmeg, brown sugar, dijon & soy sauce. The meatloaf sauce in this recipe will be even more delicious & easier to make.

Healthy Meatloaf?

This recipe made with lean ground beef (140 calories) or made with ground turkey (120 calories). I often use ground turkey instead of ground beef because once I add the sauce, my own family genuinely can’t tell the distinction.

Freezing And Storing Mini Meatloaf:

  • To store: place the cooked muffins in a container within the fridge for three-4 days.
  • To freeze: put together the meatloaf and press it into the muffin tin. Cover the muffin tin with plastic wrap and place it within the freezer to “flash freeze.” After approximately 1 hour, remove the raw, partially frozen meatloaf muffins and place them in a freezer safe resealable bag. Freeze for up to 3 months.
  • To re-heat: remove the muffins from the freezer and place them in the muffin tin, in the refrigerator overnight. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes, remove them from the oven and top them with sauce. Bake again for 10-15 minutes.
