Low Fat Mini Meatloaves

With DH being a diabetic, I am always looking for ways to add veggies into the diet. I found a recipe on the web and did some adjusting to suit our taste. The recipe calls for ground turkey; however, extra-lean ground beef also works well. Top with Creole Sauce Creole Sauce for a fabulous main course! These can be frozen, defrosted in the refrigerator and warmed as needed making this a great recipe for small families or when preparing a meal for one.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Spray a non-stick muffin tin or silicone muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Crumble the ground meat into a large bowl; add the shredded carrots, zucchini, onion and green pepper.
  4. Add the Italian seasoning and Worcestershire sauce.
  5. Mix ingredients lightly with a fork.
  6. Place the bread in a blender and process until fine crumbs; add the crumbs to the meat mixture along with the egg substitute or egg.
  7. Mix ingredients with a fork until well blended.
  8. Separate mixture into 6 equal portions and place in prepared pan, top with ketchup and bake in oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until done.
  9. Serve immediately with Creole Sauce or allow the meatloaves to cool completely and place in a plastic bag, label, date and seal.
  10. When ready to prepare the frozen meatloaves, remove what you need from plastic bag, place in refrigerator overnight and reheat in oven or microwave until warm.

I love meatloaves, with two of us there is alway something leftover for the next day. I used turkey, as I do not eat red meat. I had zucchini from the farmers market, so this recipe was great. My husband didn't even realize I had snuck veggies into his meatloaf.

There is a lot to like about these little meat loafs. Really like that they are cooked in a muffin tin and can be frozen and the microwave to re-warm. Love all the veggies in this recipe as well as the fact that it calls for egg substitute. Made as written and got 8 large meat muffin loafs. Thanks so much for the post.
