Author Laura Doerr

Ingredients

  • 1 lb lean ground beef or turkey
  • 1 box stuffing mix (any flavor) such as Stove Top
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and pepper
  • shredded cheese optional
  • crispy onion strings optional
  • cooking spray

Sauce topping

  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey mustard
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and spray a 12 cup muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Combine beef or turkey, stuffing mix, water, garlic and onion powder, Worcestershire sauce, and salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Gently combine with your hands or wooden spoon, but be careful not to over mix or the meatloaf will be tough and dense. If meat seems a little dry, add a bit more water.
  3. Evenly fill the 12 cup muffin tin with the meat mixture
  4. Combine all of the sauce topping ingredients in a small bowl, stir until combined.
  5. Spoon about 1+ tablespoon of sauce onto each meatloaf muffin.
  6. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until meat is cooked through. If adding shredded cheese to the top, remove after 20 minutes, top with cheese, and bake for another 5 minutes to melt the cheese.
  7. Serve immediately, top with crispy onion strings if desired.

Recipe Notes

This recipe is equally delicious with any protein. I often do a combo of beef and turkey together, I've also used venison and elk.

As usual, I add sriracha to my sauce topping mixture for an extra kick.

For an Italian twist add Italian seasonings to the meat mixture, and swap out the sauce topping with marinara and parmesan cheese!
