Individual Turkey Meatloafs
Serves: Makes about 6 Mini Meatloafs
  • 1 C. Ketchup
  • ½ C. Brown Sugar, packed
  • 1 T. Olive oil
  • 1 C. Onion, diced
  • 1 t. Garlic, minced
  • ¾ C. Carrot, grated
  • Pepper, to taste
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 2½ t. Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ C. Parsley, chopped
  • 1 C. Bread Crumbs
  • ⅓ C. Milk
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Egg White
  • 1 LB. Ground Turkey
  • Whipped Mashed Potatoes(for topping, if desired)
  • Parsley, for garnishing
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease 6 muffin tins.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the ketchup, brown sugar and 1 t. of the Worcestershire sauce. Set aside.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a small skillet and saute the onion, garlic, and carrot until the onion and carrot are soft. Stir in the pepper, salt, and remaining 1½ t. Worcestershire sauce and then transfer the mixture into a large bowl.
  4. Pour the breadcrumbs, milk, and parsley into the bowl.
  5. Add in the eggs, turkey, and 2 T. of the ketchup mixture. Mix everything together until well combined(I prefer to use my hands).
  6. Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions. Form each portion into a ball and pat down into a greased muffin tin, filling the tin with the mixture and leaving the top domed.
  7. Spoon a bit of the remaining ketchup mixture on top of each muffin and spread evenly. Reserve the remaining sauce to serve along side the meatloaf.
  8. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until turkey is fully cooked.
  9. Remove muffins from tins(I find its helpful to run a knife along the inside of each tin and use a spoon to help lift them out.
  10. If desired, pipe whipped mashed potatoes on top of each muffin and garnish with a bit of parsley.
  11. Serve along with the remaining sauce.
*Don't worry about the muffin tins overflowing with grease and the meatloaf shrinking. Using ground turkey means that there is a much lower percentage of fat and it will keep its shape and not shrink noticeably when cooked.
*If you use ground beef in place of the turkey, expect it to shrink quite a bit...the muffins will not be as tall and shapely as ones made with ground turkey would be.
