Mini Turkey Meatloafs

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 pound 93%-lean ground turkey
  • 1 medium zucchini, shredded or chopped finely
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds (or the Hemp Hearts from Costco!)
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Feel free to add mushrooms or other veggies are good additions too!

DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Generously spray a nonstick muffin pan with olive oil cooking spray.
2. Gently mix turkey, zucchini, onion, bell pepper, egg, vinegar, mustard, other veggies, pepper
and salt in a large bowl, preferably with your hands, without overworking. Equally divide the mixture
among the muffin cups.
3. Bake until the meatloaves are cooked through or an instant-read thermometer inserted into the
center registers 165 degrees F, about 25 minutes. Let the loaves stand in the pan for 5 minutes
before serving.

Makes 6 servings, 2 loaves each.

  1. I’ve been making these for months now and they are my favorite meatloaf recipe! Tonight I added 1 cup shredded carrots and an extra TBS balsalmic and Dijon (and a little katchup on top) and they were PERFECT! Also I’ve tried both chia seeds and hemp hearts and much prefer the chia seeds. The flavor and texture is better. 🙂
