1 teaspoon olive oil
1 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup finely chopped carrot
3 bell peppers (I used one orange, yellow & red), chopped
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon dried basil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup ketchup, divided
1/2 teaspoon sriracha
1 pound ground beef, extra lean
1/2 pound sweet Italian sausage, cut out of its casing (I used 2 sausages)
1 cup panko breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 large eggs
Top each with two teaspoons ketchup. (I got bored/creative)
Serve with sauteed green beans and baked potato wedges if desired.
The best part of this dish is the remaining “muffins” can be frozen for future meals.
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 cup finely chopped onion
- 1/2 cup finely chopped carrot
- 3 bell peppers (I used one orange, yellow & red), chopped
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 cup ketchup, divided
- 1/2 teaspoon sriracha
- 1 pound ground beef, extra lean
- 1/2 pound sweet Italian sausage, cut out of its casing (I used 2 sausages)
- 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 2 large eggs
- Cooking spray
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare your onion, carrot, garlic, and peppers. Heat a saute pan over medium heat. Add the onion, carrot, basil, parsley, garlic and peppers.
- Cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Add the sausage, cut out of the casing, beef, ½ ketchup, sriracha, panko, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, ground pepper, eggs, and the cooled onion mixture in a large bowl.
- Coat a muffin tin with cooking spray. Add the mixture to the muffin tins. (I used large muffin tins so there were only 6. This recipe also works with the standard size 12. For the large, 1 muffin is a serving. For the standard, 2 muffins are a serving.)
- Top each with two teaspoons ketchup.
- Bake for 25 minutes or until a thermometer registers 160 degrees. (The larger muffins ended up taking about 35 minutes total).
I make something similar to these, and they are delicious! I am not a huge meatloaf fan, but I like these little guys. Super easy and great frozen.
love the ketchup swirl on top!

Yummy!! These look awesome and I will be trying them this weekend. Have you ever tried Cooking Light’s Santa Fe Meatloaf? It has a hidden layer of cheese!
These are such a good idea. Love that you added in some sausage.
Wow, these are adorable, and I love the serving sizes 🙂 I also enjoy Sriracha on about anything, so it sounds like a great recipe!
They look really yummy and child friendly too. Have you tried them cold as well? Could be good to take along to a picnic ..
Love this idea! I don’t think I’ve ever made meatloaf but I am totally on board for trying these in muffin form!
I refused to eat meatloaf for the longest time. I made it once not to long ago and it turned out way better than I ever imagined. I love the mini form.
Fun and they look amazing!
