▢1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef (or ground turkey)
▢2/3 cup panko bread crumbs
▢1/2 cup onion , chopped
▢1 Tablespoon barbecue sauce
▢1 Tablespoon mustard
▢1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
▢1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
▢1/2 teaspoon salt
▢1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
▢1 egg , lightly beaten
▢1/3 cup light brown sugar
▢1/2 cup ketchup
▢2 teaspoon dijon mustard
▢1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl (using your hands or a large spoon), combine ground beef, breadcrumbs, onion, 1 Tbsp barbecue sauce, mustard, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper and egg.
Divide the mixture among the 12 cups in a standard muffin tin, pressing them down to fill the cup. Bake for 15 minutes.
In the meantime, in a small bowl mix together all of the ingredients for the sauce.
Remove the meatloaf from oven and use a paper towel to soak up any grease on the meatloaf.
Generously spoon sauce over each mini meat loaf. Return to oven for an additional 10-15 minutes or until the meat is cooked through.
Serve with mashed potatoes and any extra sauce.
