Mr. Food: Muffin Tin Meat Loaves

What You’ll Need

  • 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1/2 cups shredded zucchini (about 1 medium)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup ketchup

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except ketchup, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Place about 1/3 cup of beef mixture into each of 12 medium muffin cups, pressing lightly; spread ketchup evenly over tops.
  3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until no pink remains and juices run clear.


  • If you want, you can use yellow squash in place of the zucchini…or some of both!
