Clean Eating Mini Meat Loaves (Paleo Too!!!)

This recipe only used 1 pound of ground meat and makes the perfect size to serve a family of four (like us!) and not have a ton of leftovers. Often, meatloaf recipes call for 2-3 pounds of meat and you end up with a lot of leftovers. I like that making mini meat loaves gives us smaller portion sizes that the kids prefer and cooks up a lot faster than a large loaf.

You could make this ground turkey if you like or get the leanest ground beef available from the meat counter at your supermarket or butcher. You can also choose to use just egg whites instead of a whole egg as well.

If you are looking for a different meatloaf recipe than this one, then try these other two I have created:

Clean Eating Mini Meat Loaves
1 pound of lean ground beef or ground turkey
2 eggs whites or 1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 onion, chopped
2 T Italian Seasoning
1/4 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper, to taste
2-3 oz tomato sauce (rest of 8 oz can will be used in the topping)

5-6 oz tomato sauce
1 tsp Italian Seasoning


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  • Mix together all loaf ingredients in a medium bowl
  • Mix together topping ingredients, you can do this right in the can
  • Split up the meat mixture among 10 greased muffin cups
  • Top with the tomato sauce mixture
  • Bake for 20 minutes
  • Allow to sit for 5 minutes before
