Muffin Tin Meat Loaves

(4 Votes)
Coming In:
20 Min

By making meat loaf in muffin tins, you reduce the cooking time...which means that dinner can be on the table quicker. Now, isn't that great news?!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded zucchini (about 1 medium zucchini)
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degree F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except the ketchup, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Place about 1/3 cup of the beef mixture into each of 12 medium muffin cups, pressing lightly; spread ketchup over tops.
  3. Bake 20 minutes, or until no pink remains and juices run clear.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

also super good for diabetics if you use lean ground turkey

I plan on using my own meat loaf recipe, but using muffin tins sounds like a winning idea.

I use shredded carrots, barbeque sauce and horseradish with egg, & bread crumbs. also like to use meatloaf mix as meat instead of just ground beef

I have been using my muffin tins like this for years. It's a great way to make individual servings of stuffing as well, as meat loaves and mac & cheese. Happy cooking!!

Would love Tony's recipe too!

It's a cute idea, but not very practical. You would need to use a cookie sheet under the muffin pan, to catch the drippings, and you will have a messy cleanup. I'll stick to my own recipie. Every one loves it! Even meat loaf haters.... once they "try" mine they always ask for "seconds". I love to tease them, and say that they have now been converted... LOL

So, what is your recipe?

Please share your meat loaf recipe.

If you are bragging you are sharing...give up that recipe...

Please share your muffin tin meatloaf version with me.

Come on, Tony.....give out with your meat loaf recipe.

As a southern girl this is not the comfort food I enjoy.
