I work with busy women everyday and I’m always trying to think of ways to help them reach their health and nutrition goals without having to cook separate meals for themselves and their family. I get it, most kids want to survive on chicken nuggets and mac and cheese, but that doesn’t mean they should! That’s why I came up with this whole30 mini turkey meatloaf recipe. These mini meatloaves are easily portable (so you can grab them and go if needed), and they are perfect for little hands that want to dunk their food in ketchup!

These whole30 mini turkey meatloafs can be made ahead of time (meal prep) or thrown together the night of with little to no hands on time, which makes it perfect for busy weeknight meals! And because they are mini meatloaves, they don’t take an hour to cook.

It’s still so incredibly hot in Austin, so turning the oven on for dinner is almost out of the question right now. But these little mini meatloaves were made in the toaster oven in a muffin tin! So simple! And this recipe would double easily, so if you are really trying to be efficient with your time you should definitely make two batches and enjoy this whole30 mini turkey meatloaf for lunch the next day as well! Another great lunch idea you could make in the toaster oven are these amazing Whole30 sundried tomato turkey sliders

How to add more veggies to these mini meatloaf

I packed these mini meatloaves with nutrition. Kale, hemp hearts, and my favorite spices for flavor! For a simple meal, that requires little to no cooking, you could serve these with kale and cauliflower rice, both cooked from frozen! That has been my time saving go to combination lately! Just squeeze fresh lemon juice over the kale and sprinkle with Rancher Steak Rub and a touch of salt for the perfect side dish!

If you, your kiddos or spouse don’t love kale or won’t eat green food, you could also use cauliflower rice in place of the kale to keep these nutritious and packed with veggies! Just remember to also squeeze the excess moisture out of the riced cauliflower after its been cooked to keep these from getting watery.

Tips for easy cleanup

If you make these whole30 mini turkey meatloaves in silicone muffin liners you may notice that they may have a little water build up in the liners, so be careful when you are removing them from the liners and they are still hot.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, microwave the kale for 2 minutes to defrost. Remove from microwave and squeeze kale over sink to remove excess water (may be hot, so be careful).
  • Once kale has excess water removed, add the coconut aminos, applie cider vinegar, tomato paste, salt, Wildtree Rancher Steak Rub seasoning and hemp hearts. Mix well.
  • Add the ground turkey to the bowl and combine until well mixed (don’t over mix though).
  • Spoon the turkey into 8-10 muffin liners (I use silicone for easy clean up).
  • Bake in a 425F oven (or toaster oven) for 20-25 minutes.
