[Makes 20 muffins]
☂ 3 medium carrots, shredded
☂ ½ onion, shredded
☂ 3 Tbsp. whole grain mustard
☂ 2 Tbsp. honey
☂ 1½ cups BBQ sauce (I use homemade BBQ sauce which I posted in my previous recipe post and I would really recommend making it with that recipe! It's super simple and adds a lot more flavor than a bottled BBQ sauce)
☂ 5 rice crackers, crushed until like breadcrumb consistency
☂ 2 tsp. salt
☂ 1 tsp. black pepper
☂ 3 Tbsp. plain soy milk
☂ 2 lbs. lean ground beef (at least 90% lean)
☂ 20 muffin liners
☂ Preheat oven to 425 F and line muffin trays with 20 liners.
☂ In a large bowl combine shredded carrots, shredded onion, whole grain mustard, honey, 1 cup. of BBQ sauce (save the other half cup to top the meatloaf muffins with), rice cracker crumbs, salt, black pepper, and plain soy milk. Mix well until all ingredients are well incorporated.
☂ Now to the bowl add ground beef and mix until it is just combined (making sure not to over mix because the meat will get tough.)
☂ Once the meatloaf mixture is combined shape it into 20 meatballs and place them into the muffins liners.
☂ Place the meatloaf muffin trays into the oven to bake for 25 minutes.
☂ To serve the meatloaf muffins take them out of the liner (at the bottom of the liner will be the extra grease that cooked out of them and you want to remove them from that and discard the liner) and serve them with the remaining BBQ sauce to top them off.
☂ I enjoy these with either baked/mashed potatoes and spinach sauteed with garlic.
☂ WALAH! Enjoy and start feeling nourished♥
