Buffalo Chicken Meatloaf Minis

DP5A7207-1024x735

So admission: this recipe was totally supposed to be a burger, but the meat mixture was too thin to hold as a burger, so I got creative and divided it up into a muffin tin. Meatloaf minis! Ta-da!

These are full of buffalo flavor, with none of the fat from being fried. Yes, these are super-high in sodium, due to the wing sauce, which is loaded with sodium. I don’t recommend you eat these often, but they are a great swap for when you have a wing craving. You could also eliminate the cheese on top to avoid some sodium (and calories & fat) too!

This is a great recipe for a weeknight dinner. These are simple, low-cal, and they come together in less than an hour!

Hope you like them!

Enjoy!

per meatloaf minis: 130 calories, 6.5g fat, 769mg sodium, 4.75g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 1.5g sugars, 13g protein

 

Ingredients:

1 lb. ground chicken breast (or extra-lean ground turkey)

1/2 cup Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Wing Sauce

1 cup shredded carrots, finely chopped

1/2 cup finely chopped scallions (or red onion if you prefer)

1/4 cup breadcrumbs

2 large egg whites

1 tsp. chopped garlic

1/4 tsp. black pepper

1/4 cup low-fat ranch dressing (I love Bolthouse Farms yogurt dressing!)

2 slices reduced-fat cheddar cheese, quartered to yield 8 squares total

Directions:

Preheat oven 350 degrees. Spray 8 cups of a 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick spray.

In a large bowl, combine ground chicken, wing sauce, carrots, scallions, breadcrumbs, egg whites, garlic, and black pepper. Mix well. Evenly divide chicken mixture among the 8 sprayed cups in your muffin pan. Smooth out the tops and top each with 1/2 tbsp. light ranch.

Bake until fully cooked, about 25 – 30 minutes. Top each with 1 square of cheddar cheese, and return to oven until melted, about 2 minutes.

If you like, top with more wing sauce. (Careful, this recipe is already loaded with sodium thanks to that salt-loaded sauce! But it’s an indulgence!)
