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!
