Mini Meatloaf for the Whole Family

 My mom used to make mini meatloaf for us when we were kids. It's a great way to quickly make meatloaf for the whole family.  I changed a few things from the original meatloaf recipe to make it appropriate for my little guy. I also added minced carrots and chopped kale to the meatloaf mix to add vitamins A and C, betacarotene, calcium, and iron. This can be pureed with a little water for little one's 8+ months, or served as a finger food. 

Here's what you need:
1 lb ground turkey (or ground beef)
1/3 cup tomato paste
1/3 to 1/2 cup chopped kale
1 large organic carrot peeled and minced or grated
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 tsp onion powder
1 garlic clove minced
pinch ground pepper
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 egg lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 350F. Mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Spoon meatloaf mix into each cup of a cupcake tray. Put tray in oven and cook for 35-40 minutes. Serving size for your little one is 2 mini meatloaf. Enjoy!  FYI You can freeze these for up to 2 months
