Made in a muffin tin with lots of garlic and Italian seasoning, these minis are stuffed with a generous amount of mozzarella and topped with your favorite marinara sauce. This recipe couldn’t be easier and is kid-approved! I like to serve them with oven fries and green salad. This recipe makes 8 meatloaves.

  • 1kg (2.2lbs) ground turkey
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 8 cubes mozzarella approx. 2cm each
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 2 tbsp Italian parsley chopped (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350°. Spray muffin tin lightly with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl add ground turkey, onion, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper, egg and panko. Using your hands, mix everything together until combined.
  • Add the meat mixture to 8 of the muffin cups. Place one cube of cheese on top of each meat loaf and press into the centre of the mixture, then press the meat around it to enclose it completely. Spoon marinara sauce over top of each meatloaf. Bake for 30-35 minutes until cooked through.
  • Remove from oven. Set oven to 450°. Top meatloaves with parmesan and return them to the oven. Broil for a couple minutes until parmesan is melted. Top with parsley and enjoy!
