meatloaf muffins

This recipe comes from a book I don't look at often enough, More Six O'Clock Solutions by Ruth Phelan and Brenda Thompson from the Vancouver Sun Test Kitchen. The recipe is actually called mini meat loaves but at our house they are called meatloaf muffins because they are baked in muffin tins. It's a great idea and really speeds up supper prep.

I've swap in ground turkey for the ground beef in the original and I usually put pesto on my husband's "muffins" instead of the chili sauce as his stomach prefers non-tomato options.

Mini Meat Loaves (from More Six O'Clock Solutions)
1 lb ground turkey
1 large egg
1/2 c  bread crumbs (dry)
1 small onion, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
6 tbsp chili sauce (the Heinz variety, not the asian type)
1 heaping tsp dijon mustard
salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 400 deg F. In a large bowl, combine the turkey, egg, bread crumbs, onion, garlic, 2 tbsps of chili sauce, mustard, salt and pepper and mix thoroughly.

Press or scoop an equal portion of meat mixture into each of 8 greased muffin pans. Brush the tops with the remaining chili sauce. Bake at 400 deg F for 20 minutes, or until the edges are browned.
