Mini Meatloaves

Tamra over at Front Porch Reviews posted this yummy recipe and I loved it so much I wanted to share it with all of you. You can use Bob's Red Mills Gluten Free Oats in this recipe or omit the oats and substitute gluten free bread crumbs.

These Mini-Meatloaves are adapted from the EatingWell 500-Calorie Dinners Cookbook.

This meatloaf is made with ground turkey, ground beef and ground pork. Plus we've substituted breadcrumbs with quick cook oatmeal.

Mini Meatloaves

Weight Watchers PointsPlus = 5 per serving. Makes 8 servings.
8 oz lean ground pork
8 oz lean ground beef (90% or leaner)
8 oz ground turkey breast (93%)
1 egg beaten
1 T dried parsley or 1/4 C fresh chopped parsley
4 T ketchup (2 T for meat mixture & 2 T for topping)
1/4 C quick cooking oats
3 T low-fat milk
1 onion chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground pepper
1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1. Preheat oven to 375 ° F. Spray 8 muffin cups with non-stick cooking spray.
2. Mix pork, beef, turkey, egg, parsley, ketchup, oats, milk, onion, garlic, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
3. Form a ball with the meat mixture and place in the muffin cups. Combine the remaining ketcup and worcestershire sauce in a small bowl. Spoon evenly over the meatloaves.
4. Bake for 30 minutes. Make sure you place your tins on a cookie sheet to catch any spills.
I served the Mini Meatloaves with Schwan's Roasted Baby Baker Potatoes. I love these. They are so quick, easy and delicious. I normally microwave them but since baking them is the same amount of time as the meatloaves (30 minutes), I threw them on a baking sheet and put them in the oven with the meatloaf. When they were done, I pulled them from the oven and sprayed them with olive oil cooking spray and put fresh ground spicy garlic on it (it's a spice that comes in a spice grinder).
