Mini Meatloaf Muffins are small bites with BIG flavor! There are only 5 simple ingredients, the recipe cooks in 30 minutes, and they are gluten free. Parmesan gives big salty and nutty flavor. Ketchup on top cooks down into a thick, deep-flavored tangy, salty, and sweet glaze on top of each muffin. They are perfect for dinner for the kids, packing in lunches, as a snack or party appetizer! #meatloaf #familydinner #kidsdinner #dinner #easydinner
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Finely dice the Onion.
Mix all ingredients (except the 1/3 cup Ketchup reserved for the top together in a large bowl with a fork or with hands: beef, parmesan cheese, onion, egg, ketchup, salt, pepper.
Tear a small piece of bread off the size of the muffin tin bottoms and place it at the bottom. This will help to soak up the fat from the meat.
Using a small ice cream scoop, a tbsp measuring spoon or just a spoon, add about 2 tablespoons of the meatloaf mixture to each mini muffin slot.
Spread the remaining Ketchup over the top of each of the meatloaf muffins.
Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes. Pop each meatloaf muffin out using a fork. Then pull off the bread from the bottom of each muffin.
Serve and enjoy!
