Mini meat loaves with a difference, can be made smaller if preferred using smaller muffin tins. Can be served hot or cold. Reheat well for lunch.

These were super tasty! I doubled the recipe and added equal portions of ground turkey breast / pork sausage. I added homemade BBQ sauce into the mixture and extra on top. I made 18 cupcake size muffins for about 113 cals each. Served with roasted carrots and green beans. My picky kids loved them!
