Mini Meatloaf

Last night was the first kinda cold night for us here in Colorado and we were craving some comfort food…and meatloaf sounded good.  I can’t tell you if I’ve ever craved meatloaf.  But after last night’s dinner…it might be a regular thing!

Mini Meatloaf

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb ground buffalo (but you could use ground beef or ground turkey)
  • 1/2 chopped onion
  • 1 little can of mild green chiles
  • 1/4 cup eggbeaters (but you could use real eggs or egg whites)
  • low sugar ketchup – although in the future I might kick it up a notch with some sriacha or cholula 🙂
Directions:
  1. mix the meat, onion, green chiles, and eggbeaters in a bowl.  Really get in there with your hands to mix it all up.
  2. make little meatballs and put in a greased cupcake pan.
  3. drizzle a little ketchup on top of each mini meatloaf.
  4. bake at 350* for 40 min.
  5. this made 8 mini meatloaves…two servings of 4 meatloaves.
Sauteed Turnips – fyi, I had never tried turnips before and although they look like french fries (and I soooooo wanted them to taste like french fries)…they tasted like turnips.  But hey, if turnips are your thing, you just might like this little side dish.
Ingredients:
  • 2 peeled turnips cut in length-wise chunks.   I say “peeled” because I did not know that turnips required peeling.  I’m new.
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 crushed garlic clove
  • butter or margarine or pam
  • salt, pepper, paprika to taste
Directions:
  1. put all of the ingredients in a pan and sautee on medium/medium-low for as long as possible.  🙂
I served this with a salad and our comfort meal was complete!
