Keto Mini Cheeseburger Meatloaves Recipe

Do you know the muffin man? Probably not this one, the one that bakes protein-rich bacony-cheesy-mini-meatloaves. So, now that we know the muffin-maker is likely going to be you let’s get started. After you dig out your long-forgotten muffin tin, it is up to you to procure the list of ingredients: ground beef and bacon being essential.

Then there is a single egg, some cheese, dried spices, and last but not least, you will not want to forget the homemade ketchup – the unsweetened version that is chock full of spices and aromatic flavor.

The process of creating these mini cheeseburger meatloaves is super simple. Instead of using a paper liner that you cannot eat, you will take those delicious bacon slices and line each section of the muffin pan.

Now that’s something to chew on, zero-waste too! Inside the bacon liner, you will carefully place the cheeseburger mix, which is naturally low-carb, and bake them for half an hour, until browned to perfection. Little mess, no fuss, and you can eat them for breakfast or lunch, even saving a few as a snack for later.

You don’t have to stick with ground beef for your base protein, as these mini-meatloaves are versatile in the ingredient department. Pork, chicken, turkey, lamb – it all will do; you can even “hide” some organ meats in there, too, along with a handful of spinach leaves for an extra dose of vitamins A and C.
