Mighty Meatloaf Muffins




 
Hello. My name is Julia, and I am addicted to adorable foods.

These meatloaf muffins are not only ADORBS but unbelievably easy to make. And you'll never guess the secret ingredient that makes them so, so tasty!

Stove Top Stuffing!

Yep! Stuffing perks these little meat parcels right up and gives them a TON of flavor. Plus it makes the recipe pretty cost effective as well.

I have made these many, many times and they never let me down. Or anyone that tries them, really.

Oh, did I mention you can freeze them? And they heat up in a flash in the microwave? So make lots of them while you're at it. Freeze em. And heat em up for lunch or dinner when you're feeling lazy or if you really need something cute in your life. 




-Ingredients-

1 lb 93% lean ground beef
1 box Stove Top stuffing (I used Savory Herb)
2 egg whites
1 tsp garlic powder
1 c water
1/2 large onion, diced or grated (I grated them to hide them from you know who)
6 tbsp ketchup (optional)

-Directions-

1. Preheat oven to 350*.
2. In a large bowl, mix everything but ketchup until well combined. (Easy, right?)
3. Spray 12 muffin tins with cooking spray. Fill evenly with meat mixture. (I separated the meat into 4 even sections. Then I separated each section into three equal balls and put them in the tins.) Press down lightly.
4. Top each muffin with 1/2 tbsp ketchup.
5. Bake at 350* for 45 minutes.
6. Let stand a couple of minutes before removing. Using a butter knife, go around the edges of the muffin and then pop it out.

To freeze: let muffins cool to room temperature. Flash freeze on a baking sheet for an hour. Then put them in freezer bag for storage.

I planned on eating 2 muffins, for a total of 6 points plus a piece. I felt full after one though so I saved the second. Mr. Picky ate 7...

  1. Too bad I won't be able to get the box stove topping stuffing here because it looks like an amazing meatloaf muffin! Do you happen to have a substitute-ingredient for the stuffing?

  2. Laura,

    I bet you could just use a couple of cups of cubed bread. Just add some seasonings to the mixture!
