My BBQ Mini Meatloaf Recipe is a great weeknight dinner but they also look fancy enough for a special occasion. They are the perfect size for kids and with bacon and cheddar, they are approved by the ones in my house.
BBQ Mini Meatloaf Recipe – Low Carb, Keto, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, THM S
Most of the recipes I create are to please my family at dinnertime. I have 2 kids who love meatloaf and BBQ sauce, 3 who love cheddar, and all 4 love bacon. Making a recipe for mini meatloaf in a muffin tin was a popular dinner in my house.
Therefore, this is a pretty popular meal in my house. I’ve wanted to try this recipe for mini meatloaf in muffin tins for a while and I finally did tonight. I love these as mini meatloaves because everyone gets a good amount of the barbecue bacon cheddar topping.
Here are some great sugar free BBQ sauce recipes:
Sweet and Spicy Sugar Free BBQ Sauce from Wonderfully Made and Dearly Loved
Sweet Southern BBQ Sauce from Mrs. Criddle’s Kitchen
Tangy Sugar Free Barbecue Sauce from The Coers Family
- 1 oz sugar free bbq sauce
- 2 oz shredded cheddar
- 2 T bacon crumbles
- Preheat oven to 350. Combine all the meatloaf ingredients and mix well. Divide into 12 parts and put in the holes of a regular sized muffin tin. Bake at 350 for 30 min.
- Remove the muffin tin from the oven and drizzle on the remaining bbq sauce. Divide the 2 oz shredded cheddar between the meatloaves. Sprinkle on remaining bacon.
- Bake for an additional 10 min or until the meatloaves are 160 degrees when checked with a meat thermometer. Serve with extra bbq sauce for dipping.
