mini meatloaves
I love meatloaf! My whole family loves meatloaf! Sometimes I don’t have over an hour to wait for it to bake, this is a wonderful, quick and delicious alternative!

I wanted these to be as allergy friendly as I could get them, so I went with simple, yet flavorful! There are no eggs, yet they stayed together beautifully! There is no wheat or oats etc, yet they were moist! I did top them with a smidgen of mustard, which was the perfect little tang!

I baked them in my silicone muffin pans, so easy to use, non stick, easy cleanup. Mine get lots of use creating wonderful things both sweet and savory!


My side dish to keep this a delicious S was asparagus. They had it on sale for $1.99 a bunch at Trader Joe’s today, I couldn’t help myself! I did a simple light saute in some EVOO and seasoned simply with salt and pepper. Any non starchy would round this out beautifully, with butter! I only used EVOO this time instead of butter because my husband is on a cleanse and no butter for him until next week!  It was such a good dinner I could hardly wait to share!

Marvelous Mini Meatloaves


2 pounds 85% lean ground beef (I wanted a little fat in there for moistness and flavor)
1 Tabelspoon dried minced onion
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
1/2 teaspoon real salt
2 teaspoons dried thyme

That’s it! So simple!!

Combine all of the ingredients, which I do in my mixer, but don’t overmix it!! We don’t want tough little meatloaves!

Now break the meat in to 12 pieces and roll in to balls. Place one in each cup of your muffin tin.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes!
