I’m going to start this post the complete opposite of how I should and just come out and say, do not judge this recipe by the pics I took, lol. Unless of course, you think everything looks delicious. However, I waited a little too late in the day, when the sun was poking through our window by the dining table, to take them so there’s a bit of a glow-y sheen happening and that’s just not the most flattering look for my yummy muffin tin turkey meatloaves. Ugh. Wish I was enough of a perfectionist to take new pics today, but that would require having leftover meatloaf minis and there simply aren’t any left in our fridge to photograph. How about that for a real life recipe review and proof that you should try to make some!? You should also know that it’s a super healthy version compared to traditional meatloaf, packed with protein, pairs well with so many things (my favorite combo below), and is delicious. Keep scrolling for the recipe!
This time of year I also love serving these meatloaves with warmed cinnamon applesauce!

- 2 lbs ground turkey
- 2 slices bread, crumbled
- 1/2 or 1 full onion, finely diced (I used to do 1 full onion, but find 1/2 onion is more kid friendly)
- 3/4 cup ketchup, plus more for brushing on top
- 1 tablespoon dry mustard (or sub for 1/2 to 1 tablespoon dijon mustard)
- 2 cloves minced garlic (usually 1 teaspoon of pre-minced)
- 1 teaspoon salt (or more depending on preference)
- 1 teaspoon pepper (or more depending on preference)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and get muffin tin out.
- In a large mixing bowl combine all of the ingredients… I usually use my hands for this!
- Divide evenly into muffin tin cups — forming a little mound at the top. If desired, brush tops with a little ketchup.
- Place in oven and bake for 35-40 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 170 degrees. Remove from oven and check for doneness… let rest for 5 minutes, and serve!
Working on the recipes for November’s meal plan, but we still have a couple weeks left of the October one!
