I think I've posted before about how much I love the weelicious website. Catherine inspires me to cook good food for my little guy - and to make things that I would like to eat too!
The weather has turned cold here in Calgary, and I was making some Guinness Beef Stew for the Hubs last night and thought since I had everything out that I would make a batch of mini meatloaves to freeze for the little monster to eat throughout the week. They really come in handy on days like today when I don't feel like cooking!
I also feel the need to tell you that I had never had meatloaf until I made these! It's not all that bad! I adapted the recipe from the Joy of Cooking meatloaf recipe (left out the salt, horseradish, bacon, onions and pepper)
Mini Meatloaf Muffins
1 pound ground beef (I used PC "free from" Angus Beef - love that I can get antibiotic/hormone free beef at Superstore now!)
2 tbsp ketchup
1 cup large flake rolled oats
1 cup sauteed spinach (this was probably 3 or 4 cups raw?)
1/2 cup shredded carrots
dash Worchestershire sauce
Mix it all together, shape into balls and cook in muffin tins for 45 mins at 350, or until a meat thermometer reads 160F.
They are a great quick lunch. I even had one for lunch today!
