Individual Mini Meatloaf

Makes: 9 – 12 difference sized ones

My family loves the vegetable full meatloaf and today I decided to make mini individual ones.

I usually make the vegetables sauté in the morning so there is enough time for it to cool.

Some of the family like hardboiled eggs and others don't, therefore you can make them with or without the egg. You just have to boil enough eggs for the loaves that have them.


2 tbsp oil

2 cups chopped onions

2 cups chopped celery

2 cups grated carrots

1 cup water

2 pounds ground turkey

2 pounds ground pork

2 cups breadcrumbs

2 cups grated parmesan

1 tbsp garlic

1 tbsp salt

½ cup parsley finely ground

3 eggs

1 ½ cup shredded mozzarella

As many hardboiled eggs you want to use

2 slices bacon per mini loaf

4 cups Brussel sprouts cut in half

4 cups baby potatoes cut in half

1 tbsp garlic salt

1 tbsp olive oil

Béarnaise sauce package

  3. Add 1 cup of water and keep sautéing until the vegetables are soft and almost mushy

  4. Cool down vegetables for at least an hour

  5. Place meat in very large mixing bowl

  6. Add breadcrumbs, parmesan, garlic, salt, parsley, eggs and vegetable medley
