Weeknight Mini Turkey Meatloaves

Weeknight mini turkey meatloaves are the perfect family meal for those days when you want a comforting, yet healthy meal. These are made with ground turkey which contains less fat than ground beef, without compromising too much flavor. I also love these because you can add as much or as little of each spice that your family would like, and they will still turn out great! 

Another great thing about mini turkey meatloaves is that they are made in muffin tins. This makes it super easy to ensure that each meatloaf is about the same size. This also makes them so easy to serve! For my kids, I usually give them each two of these weeknight mini turkey meatloaves, and that seems to be just enough! 

I’ve been making these for years now, and I always serve them with some kind of potato and a side of steamed green beans. Check back next week for a delicious, and easy recipe for garlic roasted potatoes.

Make-ahead meals are so nice for busy weeknights! The meatloaves and potatoes were made ahead of time. I had a couple of hours during the day while my kids were at school so I went ahead and prepared them, and then set them in the fridge. About an hour before dinner, I popped them in the oven, and we can a healthy, delicious dinner! Both of my kids had activities after school so cutting down on dinner prep time was much needed!
