Moist, flavorful and absolutely one of the best meat loaf recipes yet! Using a large muffin pan allows the mini meat muffins to cook faster and makes portion sizing easier. I like to serve this with sweet potatoes or butternut squash. I think the mini meat loaves taste great the next day as they are easy to put away and re-heat. Try making a meat loaf sandwich out of them too.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 ½ pounds lean ground beef
  • ¾ cup crumbled blue cheese
  • ½ cup diced onion
  • ½ cup Italian bread crumbs
  • ½ cup chopped fresh spinach
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a large muffin pan with cooking spray.
  2. 2 Combine ground beef, blue cheese, onion, bread crumbs, spinach, eggs, and Worcestershire sauce in a large bowl until well blended. Divide meat mixture evenly into the prepared muffin pan.
  3. 3 Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

  1. I made these for supper last night. I'm not much of a cook and have never made meat loaf before but I figured these sounded straight-forward enough. I used fresh spinach and onion (both locally organically grown!) Progresso Italian-style bread crumbs and Athenos Blue Cheese Crumbles. I followed the recipe exactly. I was able to - Read more ...
  2. These are wonderful! I have a new meatloaf favorite recipe. I halved the recipe but did not halve the blue cheese or spinach. I used dried minced onion (just dumped in about 1/4 c). I also added a pinch of red pepper flakes to the meat mixture. I used seasoned Panko bread crumbs. As per - Read more ...
  3. trying to find something different to do with ground turkey tonight when i happened upon this little gem :) really really good idea and base recipe. in my opinion, both the spinach and cheese need to be doubled, and the breadcrumbs need to be cut back by half, hence the 4 star rating. i was - Read more ...
  4. Wow! We loved these at the LTH house and it is rare for us both to rave about a meal, ESPECIALLY dreaded "meatloaf"! I followed the recipe to a "T", though I did sub gorgonzola for blue because I was too lazy to backtrack in the grocery store. I ended up with a fairly rough - Read more ...
  5. I loved this! I made it shaped as a regular meatloaf instead of the individual servings and added a ton of extra blue cheese since we love the flavor--and I can not wait to make it again!
  6. Very tasty. Gave it a 4/5 because I added more cheese and coated the top with 1/4 c. brown sugar 1/4 c. ketchup and 2T worcestershire sauce.
  7. This was excellent. Blue cheese is the way to go. I LOVE meatloaf and I liked the idea of making individual portions and having it bake more quickly. I used frozen spinach instead of fresh and just thawed it and squeezed out the water. Also added some ketchup. To me meatloaf isn't meatloaf without it. - Read more ...
  8. I was a little worried that my kids (6yo & 2 1/2yo) would turn up their noses at the blue cheese but I was so pleasantly surprised how mild the blue cheese flavor was. The marriage of flavors here were delicious and my husband proclaimed it his favorite meatloaf ever. I used 2lbs of ground - Read more ...
  9. made them lastnight for the picky eaters in my home....& WOW they both loved it!!! My 12yr old niece hates everything, and she asked for more! I used turkey instead of beef. Thank You!
