Muffin pan Meatloaf

I got this recipe from the Good Housekeeping Children's Cookbook and it was a huge hit with the family! I didn't have all of the ingredients so I adapted the recipe to account for those differences.

Here is my version:

Muffin Pan Meatloaf

  • 1 small onion
  • 2 cups of frozen corn kernels (thawed)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 lb of ground beef
  • 1/2 lb of ground turkey
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • Salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste
  • 2 tsp rosemary

    1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
    2. Spray the muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray (I didn't have that, so I just rubbed the cups with canola oil)
    3. Finely chop onion
    4. In a large  mixing bowl, mix the ground beef, ground turkey, finely chopped onion, egg ,  corn, and egg. Use your hands to mix it all until well combined.
    5. Add the seasoning and bread crumbs. Use your hands to work those in too.
    6. With your hands make large meatballs that will fit into the muffin pan cups and stick out a bit.
    7. Place the muffin pan in the oven for about  40 minutes. Use a meat thermometer to make sure the meatloaves are cooked through. The meat should reach between 165 and 170 F.
    8. The meatloaves should be nice and browned on the outside.
    9. Serve with roasted vegetables and rice.



    This recipe was easy to make, it's pretty healthy and it's different. The kids liked helping make it too, so that was fun.

    Do you have any special recipes that the kids enjoy helping with?
