Today I have a recipe for paleo meatloaf muffins! I have to say, I have a meatloaf muffin recipe that I love already but this one tops that recipe! The more exciting part about me loving this one more is it is Paleo! I am able to enjoy meatloaf while maintaining a Paleo lifestyle.

These Paleo meatloaf muffins are great for parties and family dinners. They are already portioned and easy to serve. They are also nice to have all made ahead of time and ready to re-heat on the go, when you are in a hurry, or simply don’t want to cook. Such a great idea!

Instructions
  1. For the Roasted Tomato Sauce:
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  3. Place the halved tomatoes, cut side up, on a greased baking sheet and
  4. drizzle the olive oil over the tops. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
  5. Roast the tomatoes for 1½-2 hours on the top rack. Remove from oven and
  6. let cool slightly.
  7. Place the roasted tomatoes, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and ketchup
  8. in a blender and puree until smooth. Use in and on top of meatloaf
  9. muffins. Can be make a day or two ahead of time.
For the Meatloaf Muffins:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and lightly grease a muffin tin.
  2. Heat the olive oil to medium/high in a large saute pan. Add the onion,
  3. garlic, carrot, mushrooms,zucchini, and herbs to the pan and saute for
  4. about 5 minutes, until the vegetables are soft and onions are translucent.
  5. Place the sauteed vegetables in a large bowl and let cool for 5 minutes.
  6. Add the ground turkey, pork,tomato sauce, eggs, egg whites, coconut milk,
  7. coconut flour, salt, and pepper to the vegetables and mix together very
  8. well using hands. Let sit for 5 minutes so that the coconut flour can
  9. fully absorb liquid.
  10. Divide the meat mixture into 12 portions.
  11. Shape each portion into a ball and place in well of a muffin tin. Muffins
  12. will be tall and dome shaped on top.
  13. Bake meatloaf muffins for 20-25 minutes, until cooked through.
  14. Remove from the oven and, using a spoon, lift the meatloaf muffins out of
  15. the tin onto a platter. Scrape off any fat that may have clung to the
  16. sides of the muffins.
  17. Top each muffin with a spoonful of the remaining roasted tomato sauce(make
  18. sure it is hot). Serve immediately.
Notes:
  1. *Meatloaf will be wetter than a non-paleo meatloaf. It will still hold
  2. together very well and is very moist and tender.
  3. *Roasted Tomato Sauce can be made up to two days in advance and stored in
  4. the fridge until needed.
  5. *Canned coconut milk is not necessary, the carton variety will work just
  6. fine.

    Ooh Rebecca, I just know these are going to taste great. I like that you added zucchini, carrots and mushrooms into the meatloaf muffin mix. I am not paleo so might just use plain flour instead of coconut flour. Yum, I can just about imagine how they will taste with that lovely roasted tomato sauce. :)
