Turkey Mozzarella Meatloaf Muffins

Turkey Mozzarella Meatloaf Muffins

MY KIDS ATE VEGGIES!!! These were really tasty, pretty easy to whip up and right on track for my current program, The Master’s Hammer and Chisel. Basili and the boys really enjoyed these too, so I will consider that a win! I have made these a couple times and the second time, I made them with Roasted Garlic Mashed Cauliflower ‘Potatoes’. Talk about a hearty winter meal!

The serving size for this recipe is 3 ‘muffins’. I would suggest you cut 3 pieces of mozzarella and measure them in your blue container. For each row on your muffin tin – one serving, 4 rows, 4 servings – measure the cheese so you don’t go over on your blues. I put all of the ingredients (except for the mozzarella cheese) into a bowl and mixed it well with my hands (remove your rings!). I formed 12 large, pretty equal meat balls. I took one ball and flattened it out a little bit and wrapped the meatloaf mixture around the mozzarella cube. The cheese will be in the center of your meatloaf. DELICIOUS.

You can get silicon liners for your pan – I didn’t have any, so I sprayed mine with EVOO spray. When the meatloaf muffins were formed, I whipped up the sauce and topped each muffin with about 1 tablespoon. Pop them in the oven and enjoy!

I am always looking for something easy and kid approved! My kids enjoyed these and the cool part? There were veggies in them and they didn't even realize it! I thought these were really good and the sauce added just the right amount of tangy flavor to the dish! Enjoy!

    Is the broccoli slaw a recipe? Not familiar with it.

      You should be able to find it in the produce section at your grocery – probably by the bagged salad. 🙂

  5. Do you use a mini muffin tin or a cupcake size tin?
