Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Skinny Mini Meatloaf Muffins
Have you ever made mini meatloaf muffins?
You just take your favorite meatloaf recipe and bake it in muffin tins and voila – meatloaf muffins!
My current favorite meatloaf has just 6 ingredients – it’s a modification of Lipton’s Souperior Meat Loaf made with a package of dry onion soup mix – a staple in my Mom’s pantry when I was growing up.
Using a package of soup mix ensures that your meat loaf will be full of flavor without all the work involved with peeling and chopping onions.
The Skinny on Mini Meatloaf Muffins
If you are a purist and prefer to not use onion soup mix, you can always make this WW Meatloaf Recipe and just bake it in muffin tins instead!
To make my meatloaf muffins a little skinnier and healthier, I use quick cooking oats instead of bread crumbs, egg whites instead of whole eggs, and diced tomatoes instead of water.
According to my calculations, these mini meatloaf muffins have 255 calories, *6 Weight Watchers PointsPlus, *5 WW Freestyle SmartPoints.
Add some creamy low calorie mashed potatoes and peas or green beans to round out your dinner.
