Secret Recipe Club Turkey Meatloaf Balls

By Fitnspicy @fitnspicy

One of the things that I love the most about the Secret Recipe Club is that it forces me to try some new recipes. I try to pick dishes that I wouldn’t normally make. This month I searched through Anne’s blog, Authentically Simple, where she focuses on budget friendly family meals and found Garden Fresh Meatloaf Balls.


Since I am new to liking meatloaf I figured these would be easy to make, delicious and I would be able to freeze some too. Success! With only about 10 minutes of prep time I threw them in the oven and was able to get some blog work done, take the dogs for a quick walk and come home to clean up the kitchen and have dinner. The perfect week night meal.


I served mine with ketchup while Scott dunked his in sriracha. These went fast! I did one batch in a normal sized muffin tin and the rest in the mini muffin tin and froze them. They were cute little mini meatloaf meatballs. I may even try to use them in a soup.
