These family-favorite meatloaf muffins cook up in no time, and they are nicely seasoned and glazed with a combo of barbecue sauce and salsa. This is a really great, different way to serve meatloaf and the flavors are really great!

Meatloaf Muffins with Barbecue Sauce

Ingredients

Meatloaf Muffins:

  • 1 package (~1.25 pounds) 99% fat-free ground turkey breast
  • 1 slice whole-wheat or multigrain bread (I used Milton’s Multi-Grain) or ½ cup store-bought bread crumbs
  • 1 cup onions, finely diced
  • 1 egg, I used Egg-Land’s Best eggs
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ cup Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce or your favorite
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Fresh ground pepper, to taste

Topping:

  • ⅓ cup Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce or your favorite

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Coat a regular (12-cup) muffin pan with cooking spray.  Since this recipe makes 9 meatloaf muffins, you’ll only fill 9, not 12. Set aside.
  • 2. To make bread crumbs: Toast 1 slice whole-wheat or multigrain bread. Place in blender and pulse until made into crumbs.
  • 3. In a large bowl, add ground turkey, bread crumbs, onions, egg, Worcestershire sauce, ½ cup barbecue sauce,  salt, and pepper.  Using your hands or a large spoon, thoroughly mix together until well blended.
  • 4. Add meatloaf mixture to the 9 muffin cups, flattening out the tops. Top each meatloaf muffin with ¾ tablespoon barbecue sauce and spread evenly over top.
  • 5. Bake for 40 minutes. Run a knife around each muffin to loosen it from pan. Remove to a serving plate.

Shopping Tips:
I love Milton’s Multi-Grain bread and used it to make the bread crumbs. It’s sold in most supermarkets and Trader Joe’s. Sweet Baby Rays is such a delicious barbecue sauce. You’ll find it in most supermarkets where other barbecue sauces are sold.
