I love that they’re family-friendly, perfectly proportioned, and even a candidate for make ahead meals. They freeze beautifully.

The only difference between regular meatloaf and mini meatloaves is that I swap out breadcrumbs for healthier oats, use ground turkey instead of beef, green onions instead of a yellow onion, and add red pepper flakes.

Well… and that they cook in a standard muffin tin instead of a baking sheet or loaf pan.

To make a meal, add fresh green beans (I love our Neaopolitan Green Bean recipe), mashed potatoes, a simple seasonal salad or cucumber salad.

Just… perfect.
