Keto Meatloaf Muffins Recipe {Cheesy!}

Keto Meatloaf Muffins make an easy, family-friendly, and freezer-friendly main dish!

I’m of the opinion that mini food tastes better than its full-sized counterpart. I don’t know why it seems to taste better, but it just does. (Anyone else?! Or am I just weird?! 🙂 ) That’s why I really love recipes like my Keto Mini Quiche Recipe, Keto Pancake Muffins, and these Keto Meatloaf Muffins!

These Keto Meatloaf Muffins are dressed in a glorious layer of cheese (Colby Jack, to be specific), but if cheesy meatloaf isn’t your thing, you can skip the cheese and go for the traditional meatloaf flavor. Whatever makes your tastebuds happy!

  • This recipe is great for the holidays or any time you need a hearty meal.

  • Non-stick cooking spray
