Try this delicious twist on a family Favourite

There is something about meatloaf that is so comforting and enjoyable – especially when you have a good recipe. If you are looking for an exceptional recipe for meatloaf, this one is for you!

When I make meatloaf, I find it makes way too much for my family even when we plan to eat it for two dinners, and then I end up throwing out the leftovers. I HATE to throw away good food. To solve this problem I recently made mini meatloaves. I used a ½ cup measuring cup to help portion and shape the meatloaves. We ate what we wanted and then I froze the rest for another time – truly amazing!!

Mini Greek-Style Turkey Meatloaf
Made 12 mini meatloaves

2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 small red onion, diced small
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 large celery stalks, diced small
½ tsp. black ground pepper
2 pounds ground turkey (or ground chicken works too)
1 large egg
½ cup bread crumbs
4 ounces feta, crumbled (1 cup)
1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  • In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, and celery and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are soft, 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  • In a large bowl, combine vegetables, turkey, egg, bread crumbs, ½ teaspoon pepper, feta and dill. Using your hands, mix until combined. 
  • Using a ½ cup measuring cup, scoop ½ cup portions of the meatloaf mixture onto a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet.

  • Bake until cooked through, 30-35 minutes, until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 74°C/165°F.
