When you need a simple comfort food, Muffin Tin Mini Turkey Meatloaves are a healthy and easy option.
And one that tastes exactly like what you expect from the perennial favorite counterpart.
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.
1/2 cup oats (I use Old Fashioned)
1/2 cup milk
3–4 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)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Generously coat a 12-cup standard muffin tin with cooking spray. Set aside.
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.
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.
Bake uncovered for about 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
