This healthy meal is super easy and delicious. Not to mention - it bakes more quickly than a large meat loaf because of the smaller muffin size.

  3. In a medium bowl, mix together the meatloaf ingredients.

  4. Scoop about 1/4 cup meatloaf mixture into each lined muffin cup. Bake for 25 minutes.

    The meat part may turn out more moist if you do not finely dice, just chop the onion and mix. Also added chopped red pepper. You could probably grill as you would hamburger or turkey burgers and cut in quarters or something like that. Not sure you need a muffin cup. The sweet potatoes really are a nice touch. I will make it again.

    This is the best meatloaf muffins. Decided to try it on hubby, he loved them. I made with all ingredients but added some parsley flakes also. The aroma and texture were perfect. Will be making again.
