Turkey Meatloaf Muffins

Meatloaf is one of my family’s favorite dinners of all time.  My mom makes a mean meatloaf, let me tell you!  She’s even won a best meatloaf contest.  While I love hers, I wanted to try something new with mine.  Thus, turkey meatloaf muffins were born.



What I particularly like about making turkey meatloaf using my muffin tin is that it makes portion control a cinch.  I made them one night when our friend Gary came over.  Both he and Chris approved … however, Gary asking for the recipe made them blog-worthy.



These are definitely becoming a “go to” favorite.  I am thinking about making some this week and freezing them to give us a decent home-cooked meal next week after the movers take all of our stuff.

      1. That’s why I like making them in the muffin tin … super fast cooking time :)

  1. I can totally vouch for these…I think I found the recipe on your recipage awhile back, but they have totally become a staple in our house…like at least twice a month. Everyone loves them, even our 18 month old. :) Yum!

  3. These are amazing! I thought they might be dry because the turkey has minimal fat, but they were so moist and delicious! Thank you!
