Moist, flavorful and absolutely one of the best meat loaf recipes yet! Using a large muffin pan allows the mini meat muffins to cook faster and makes portion sizing easier. I like to serve this with sweet potatoes or butternut squash. I think the mini meat loaves taste great the next day as they are easy to put away and re-heat. Try making a meat loaf sandwich out of them too.

Directions

  2. Combine ground beef, blue cheese, onion, bread crumbs, spinach, eggs, and Worcestershire sauce in a large bowl until well blended. Divide meat mixture evenly into the prepared muffin pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

made them lastnight for the picky eaters in my home....& WOW they both loved it!!! My 12yr old niece hates everything, and she asked for more! I used turkey instead of beef. Thank You!

I was a little worried that my kids (6yo & 2 1/2yo) would turn up their noses at the blue cheese but I was so pleasantly surprised how mild the blue cheese flavor was. The marriage of flavors here were delicious and my husband proclaimed it his favorite meatloaf ever. I used 2lbs of ground beef and there was enough meat to fill all 6 large muffin tins and 6 regular sized muffin tins - which were perfect sized for the kids. Both muffin trays cooked together in the oven for the 30 minutes specified in the recipe. We will be making this one again very soon!!

Wow! We loved these at the LTH house and it is rare for us both to rave about a meal, ESPECIALLY dreaded "meatloaf"! I followed the recipe to a "T", though I did sub gorgonzola for blue because I was too lazy to backtrack in the grocery store. I ended up with a fairly rough chop on the onions and I'm glad I was too lazy to get a finer dice because I enjoyed the onion in larger chunks. When I make these again (and I will!), I will add more spinach and maybe some shredded carrots, too, just to pack in some more nutrients. Thanks for making me not hate meatloaf!
