A soft diet was directed by my husband’s doctor this week. So we enjoyed this fun twist on meatloaf with mashed potatoes and ginger ale caramelized carrots.
1 lb very lean ground beef
1 lb Italian turkey sausage
1 small white onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/2 cup ketchup
Heat oven to 350°F.
In a large bowl, combine thoroughly all ingredients. Using a 12 muffin pan, shape a handful of meat into a ball and place into the muffin pan. Once all 12 spots are filled with meatloaf balls, gently press two mozzarella pieces into the center of the ball and reform the top of the meatloaf ball to be smooth.
Bake 45 minutes, broiling on high for the last 5 minutes.
KID TIP: We used string cheese and this made the kids more interested in finding the cheese in their meatloaf!
