Mini Zucchini Turkey Meatloaves

This time of year, if you grow a garden or you're part of community supported agriculture (CSA), you have a lot of zucchini or summer squash on your hands. While it's tasty sautéed with some butter and garlic, I like adding it to baked goods and meatloaf for added moisture. These mini meatloaves are great for a weeknight meal because they cook twice as fast as your standard meatloaf. For added flavor, serve topped with BBQ sauce (for sweetness) or buffalo sauce (for an added kick). I served mine with roasted broccoli, but I would also recommend baked sweet potato fries to go alongside.


1. Preheat oven to 350. Coat a muffin tin with non-stick spray.
2. Combine the meatloaf ingredients in a large bowl. Transfer the mixture evenly into the prepared muffin cups.



3. Combine the ketchup and mustard and brush onto each meatloaf. Bake for 35 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before removing from the pan.
