Meatloaf Muffins

Meatloaf Muffins

When I was experimenting with the paleo diet a few years ago I was in desperate need for fast, filling, easy breakfast options – that weren’t egg-centric (as I really don’t enjoy eggs). 

Meat Muffins is what I came up with and I loved them! Especially since I could make these muffins in big batches, portion them out in lunch baggies and freeze them. Anything that allows for batch cooking and meal planning will always come out on top in my books!

However, I almost wasn’t going to post this, since these days I eat almost no meat and I’m planning on eating even less. But, when I mentioned I was putting up a new website and there would be recipes on it again, two people asked if this recipe would be included, so here it is! All I ask then is just, if you can, please be picky about where you get your meat when you are shopping for this recipe as this recipe works best with non-factory farmed, ethical, sustainable and compassionately sourced meats and eggs. 😉
