These Mini Turkey Meatloaves taste exactly like what you expect from the perennial favorite counterpart.

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. I’d not say no to these Parmesan Roasted Potatoes, either.

Just… perfect.

Mini Turkey Meatloaves: Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use this recipe to make full sized meatloaves?

Yes! Just adjust the cooking time until the meatloaf is cooked through, and remember to note it down for next time! You might end up with a little leftover glaze when you do this – it really depends on the size of your usual meatloaf pan.

What is the best way to freeze these mini meatloaves?

These freeze best cooked without glaze – this should be added once they’re thawed and you’re reheating them.

Description

When you need a simple comfort food, these Muffin Tin Mini Turkey Meatloaves are a healthy and easy option. I love that they’re family-friendly, perfectly proportioned, and even a candidate for make ahead meals.


Ingredients

Scale

1/2 cup oats (I use Old Fashioned)

1/2 cup milk

34 green onions, minced (about 2 tablespoons)

large egg, beaten

1/2 cup ketchup

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

salt and pepper to taste

1 package ground turkey (about 1.3 pounds)


Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Generously coat a 12-cup standard muffin tin with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Into a medium size bowl add the oats and milk; stir and let sit a couple of minutes. Then add the onions, beaten egg, 1/4 cup ketchup, red pepper flakes and salt and pepper to taste; stir to combine. Finally, add the ground turkey and mix together thoroughly.
  3. Drop 1/4 cup portions or scoops of meatloaf into the prepared muffin tin cups. Top each meatloaf with a drizzle of the remaining 1/4 cup ketchup.
  4. Bake uncovered for about 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
