I don’t know why I have never shared this recipe with all of you!!! I used to make these mini meat loaves all the time =) Enjoy!
Ingredients For Meat Loaf:
1 small yellow onion, coarsely chopped
1 medium carrot, peeled and coarsely chopped
1 stalk of celery, coarsely chopped
2 canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
1 (20-ounce) package lean ground turkey breast
½ cup quick cooking oats
2 egg whites or 1/4 a cup
1/4 cup fat free and sugar free ketchup
1 tablespoon chipotle pepper adobo sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar substitute (such as Splenda Brand or you can try truvia) Hard to figure this part out because it really is to taste!
Preheat oven to 350°F. In the work bowl of a food processor, combine
onion, carrots and celery. Pulse until finely chopped. Add chipotle
peppers and pulse until just combined. In a large bowl, combine the ground
turkey with the pepper and vegetable mixture. Add egg whites and oats;
gently mix until combined. Place about 1/3 cup of the prepared meat loaf
mixture into 9 wells of a standard size muffin pan that has been lightly
sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Bake for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine all of the topping ingredients in a small bowl; set aside. Remove
meat loaves from oven and spoon the topping over each meat loaf. Return
meat loaf to the oven and continue to bake for an additional 5-10 minutes
or until meat loaf is firm and the internal temperature registers 170°F.
Let meat loaf stand for 5 minutes before serving. Makes 9 mini loaves.
