Meatloaf "Muffins"

Meatloaf is known as a comfort food and as with many comfort foods, meatloaf can be a little fattening. Below is a delicious version of meatloaf that reduces the fat and sugar (yes meatloaf does have fat). The reason this recipe is called cupcake meatloaf is because it is shaped in muffin tins. The best name for this really would be Meat-Muffins since the meat is not shaped into a loaf.


1 lb of lean ground turkey
3/4 C of rolled oats
1 egg
dash of salt and pepper (and any other spices you desire)
1/2 C of tomato sauce (no salted - usually the salted contains way too much salt)

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. If you have a toaster oven, this is a great time to use it as you will make 6 meat muffins out of the amount above.
  2. Spray a 6 muffin tin with cooking spray or use cupcake liners.
  3. In a bowl mix all ingredients except the tomato sauce.
  4. Press the meat into the muffin tins.
  5. Cover the tops of the meat muffins with the tomato sauce and the spices of your choice.
  6. Cook in the oven for about 30-35 minutes.
NOTE: You will notice in this recipe that there is not worcestershire sauce or ketchup. Those have been either completely removed or replaced because both contain high-fructose corn syrup - something you want to avoid.
