Thrifty Mama's Meatmuffins





From Chris, a Guest Blogger: 











    Meatmuffins

    The short version:  a meatmuffin is a mini-meatloaf 
    made in muffin cups rather than a full sized loaf pan.  
    My kids don't like meatloaf, but my husband and I do, 
    so this is a great way to keep everyone happy!  
    Plus, as an added bonus, I realized that I could slip 
    in some frozen homemade tomato soup I made last 
    year that we didn't like in them, so it wouldn't go to 
    waste.  Yay!  I was wondering what I was going to do 
    with that!

    There are other advantages to meatmuffins, even if
     you don't have old tomato soup lurking in your freezer 
    looking for a use.  These things take a lot less time to 
    cook, so the are great if you need to get dinner on the 
    table more quickly or don't want the oven on very long 
    to keep it from heating up the house.  Not only that, 
    but they are great for portion control if you are on a diet,
     or just are trying to limit your meat consumption.

    The limited meat consumption was a huge part of why I 
    decided to make these last night.  I've been wanting 
    meatloaf, but we are almost out of ground venison, 
    so I need to be using it sparingly.  If I made a regular 
    meatloaf, I would have used at least a whole pound 
    and we probably would have eaten it all.  I made a half
    batch of this recipe last night (turned the other half
    into freezer meatballs), and we ate a total of 10 of them, 
    so there are still a couple in the freezer for next time
    I want meatloaf or to send with my husband for part of 
    a lunch at work.

    Meatmuffins
    1 1/2 lbs ground meat
    2/3 cup dry oats
    1/2 cup onion, diced
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    2 eggs
    2/3 cup condensed tomato soup

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  If using a lower fat
     meat such as venison, grease the bottom of 24 
    muffin cups.  Combine all ingredients in a large 
    bowl.  You may need to use your hands to thoroughly 
    mix (be sure to take of any rings and wash your 
    hands really well and/or wear gloves.  Yuck!).  
    Fill muffin cups approximately 3/4 of the way full.  
    Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until lightly brown on 
    the outside and no longer pink in the middle.   
    Top with ketchup if desired.

    Unused meatmuffins may be frozen in a freezer 
    safe container or bag.  To reheat, thaw completely 
    then bake at 350 degrees for 10-20 minutes until 
    heated through.
