I was worried this recipe might be too bizarre to be good, but that was fortunately not the case.
This one was inspired by EmilyBites.com.
- 1/2 to 3/4 pound lean ground beef
- 1 large egg
- 1 egg white
- 3 tbsp breadcrumbs
- 1/2 tsp basil
- 1/2 tsp thyme
- 1/2 tsp oregano
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1/4 small onion, diced
- salt and pepper
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup pasta sauce
- 2 chicken tenderloins, shredded or minced
- 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine the beef, egg, egg white, breadcrumbs, basil, thyme, oregano, garlic, onion, salt and pepper, and Parmesan cheese.
Lightly mix together. Form the meatloaf mixture evenly into a greased muffin tin pan.
Top each mini meatloaf with pasta sauce.
Then top with chicken.
Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven, add mozzarella cheese, then bake for an additional 3 to 5 minutes.
Makes 2 to 3 servings.
