Chicken Meatloaf Muffins

Happy Foodie Monday!

Originally I planned to make meatloaf for dinner last night, but I lost track of time. So I needed to think fast on how to speed up cooking dinner. All of a sudden my sleepy Sunday haze passed and I thought, let me just throw the meatloaf mix into a muffin pan, it will cook in less than half the time. Brilliant!

So here’s what you’ll need to make the meatloaf mixture, this will make a dozen muffins:

  • 2lbs ground chicken
  • 3 pieces of Ezekiel bread
  • 1 cup chopped onions (frozen)
  • 1/2 cup chopped mushrooms (frozen)
  • 4 oz chopped spinach
  • 1/2 red pepper chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp of chicken seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp seasoned salt

First crumble the Ezekiel bread, then add all the ingredients except the ground chicken, mix that with a wooden spoon.

These are so easy, I bet they freeze well but they didn’t last in my house. Super healthy and delicious.

You can make this with ground turkey or beef, whatever floats your boat. I love this recipe cause it sneaks in a bunch of veggies into a tasty protein.

Hope you enjoy these as much as my family and I did.
