"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."

Servings Per Recipe: 6
"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."
"couldnt get turkey mince on the day, so subbed half chicken and half pork and veal. Made the lightest loveliest little meatloaves!!!! doubt I will ever use beef mince again!!! The kids loved them, served with rice and gravy. Thanks Paula, love your recipes!!!
made for Aussie swap, March 2012"
"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."
"Yummy! Made as directed but subbed lean ground beef for the turkey. Next time I make these (and there will be a next time) I would add a pinch of salt. Thank for sharing!!!"
"This is absolutely the best meatloaf I have ever had. The veggies really helps keep this eatloaf from drying out like meatloaves have a tendancy to do. The veggies add a nice flavor too. Even my non-veggie-liking BF loved these things! This is a keeper recipe for sure!!"
"This was easier than it looked and it was delightfully moist. Hubs didn't know that I used turkey. Only change was to add a little onion powder, as I used half an onion. A keeper."
"This fit right into my diet, the only thing is I hate zucchini! No worries, I didn't even taste them. I also chopped up 5 mushrooms and threw them into the mix. This is a repeat recipe!!! Thank you!"
"The flavor is excellent. I used this recipe for the meatloaf muffins and added the options on this recipe: http://www.recipezaar.com/Marvellous-Mini-Meatloaves-With-Options-OAMC-204682 The combination was great! The muffin tin is perfect portioning too."
"Really nice. Would make again."
"My DH loved these and he hates veggies. You can't really taste the veggies. He ate them all up."
"These were terrific! Nice and moist, with fantastic flavour. And just as good for lunch the next day. Thanks for sharing :) Almost forgot...I used corn flake crumbs instead of bread to make gluten free."
"You will not be disappointed if you try this recipe! It is very, very good. I topped the "muffins" with Open Pit BBQ sauce and also put some sauce on the side for dipping. I served with sauteed green beans and a green salad. Just an excellent, healthy meal that satisfied the craving for comfort food without any of the guilt. Thanks, Paula!"
"Paula this recipes is over the Top! My dh could not believe how good this recipe was even without topping on it ~ we tried it before adding to see if we liked it. Thanks for posting this recipe for us all to try ~ this will be a family favorites of ours. 10 Stars!"
"Easy & tasty :-)"
"These are just so cute and delicious!! I omitted the zucchini but did everything else. Great dish, and I don't feel guilty about eating! Thank you so much! :)"
"I really love this recipe, very yummy! I don't use the carrot though, I substitute extra zucchini for that because I prefer the less noticeable taste of zucchini. :)"
"I had a little trouble getting this to hold shape, but I made a whole loaf instead of mini loaves so I will try the minis next time. I enjoyed the flavor very much, and the fact that it's chock full of veggies is the best part. I used lean ground sirloin, 2 slices of wheat bread and 8 crushed Ritz crackers to firm up the mixture. I followed the recipe almost exactly except I did not use the Italian seasoning or ketchup; I added salt and pepper to my meat mixture and I topped the loaf with one cup tomato sauce mixed with 2 tbsp of my favorite bbq sauce. I will make this again. Thanks for posting!"
"These were fantastic!! The only change I made was to double the carrot and omit the zucchini since I'm not a fan. Other than that, I followed the recipe as is and it doesn't need any changes. I made this last week and it's back on the menu this week."
"A great way to get my husband to eat his vegetables. We both enjoyed this."
"I loved these! Very similar to the BBQ meatloaf muffins I posted a while back by Rachel Ray. I used very lean ground beef. I put the carrot, zucchini, onion and bell pepper (I used a red one) in the food processor to get it very fine. I topped them with a ketchup/salsa mixture. These were really moist and the flavor was great! I'm saving this one for sure! Thanks for posting!"
