Mini Spinach & Oatmeal Meatloaf

These mini meatloaves are tasty and packed with veggies. Cooking them in a
muffin tin makes cooking time quicker and is a good way to control portions too.
I use an ice cream scoop for even portions. The recipe makes quite a few, so
freeze the leftovers and have them for another night.


  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup shredded or chopped carrots
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 10 oz. package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 small can tomato sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


Spray muffin tin with cooking spray. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine 1/4
teaspoon salt, dash of pepper, onion, mushrooms, and carrots with olive oil in
small bowl. Sauté on stove top or cook in microwave. Combine 1/4 teaspoon
salt and rest of ingredients in large bowl, add vegetable mixture. Mix
thoroughly. Bake for 30 minutes until brown and internal temperature of meat is
165 degrees.

Makes 18 mini loaves.

Serving size: 2 mini loaf
