Meatloaf Muffins with Barbecue Sauce

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Bake Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients for Meatloaf Muffins:

1 package (1.25 pounds) 99% fat-free ground turkey breast

1 slice whole wheat or multigrain bread or ½ cup store bought bread crumbs

1 cup onions, finely diced

1 egg, I used Egg-Land’s Best eggs

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

½ cup Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce or your favorite

¼ teaspoon salt

Fresh ground pepper, to taste

 

Ingredients for Topping:

⅓ cup Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce or your favorite

 

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Coat a regular (12-cup) muffin pan with cooking spray.  Since this recipe makes 9 meatloaf muffins, you’ll only fill 9 not 12. Set aside.

2. To make bread crumbs: Toast 1 slice whole wheat or multi-grain bread. Place in blender and pulse until made into crumbs.

3. In a large bowl, add ground turkey, bread crumbs, onions, egg, Worcestershire sauce, ½ cup barbecue sauce,  salt and pepper.  Using your hands or a large spoon, thoroughly mix together until well blended.

4. Add meatloaf mixture to the 9 muffin cups, flattening out the tops. Top each meatloaf muffin with ¾ tablespoon barbecue sauce and spread evenly over top.

5. Bake for 40 minutes. Run a knife around each muffin to loosen it from pan. Remove to a serving plate.

Makes 9 meatloaf muffins (1-2 muffins per serving)
